I’ve been thinking about the matter of time recently. And distractions. Because I read this article over on CopyBlogger which talked a little about how there are so many things on the internet that can distract us from the main point (this is all in the context of content marketing). And how we as internet users are becoming so used to browsing and skimming websites for the information we want, that our attention span is decreasing.
Oh no, is that me?
This past week, the Holy Word for Morning Revival was on the subject of “The God-man Who Satisfies God’s Desire and Fulfills His Good Pleasure”. We were looking at Psalms 15 and 16, which begin with the following question:
O Jehovah, who may sojourn in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy mountain?
David, the writer of this Psalm, goes on to give an answer to his question.
He who walks in integrity
And does righteousness
And speaks truth from his heart.
He does not slander with his tongue;
He does not do evil to his friend,
Nor does he take up a reproach against his neighbor.
In his eyes a reprobate is despised,
But he honors those who fear Jehovah.
Should he swear to his harm,
He does not change.
He does not lend his money on interest,
Nor accept a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will not be shaken forever.
What do you think? Is this a good answer?
Day 2 (Thursday 23rd June 2011)
After yesterdayâ€™s UCLA day (University of California Los Angeles), day 2 was a USC day (University of Southern California), another university in LA. We met some of the USC Christians on Campus students who gave us a tour of campus, had lunch nearby, and then went to the science centre and watched the IMAX 3D show about the Hubble Space Telescope. It was fascinating to fly into the midst of the stars and the galaxies, and really gave me an appreciation of the vastness of the universe and the immeasurable dimensions of Christ. Awesome.
Our space education wasnâ€™t over. From there we went to Griffith Park Observatory (from where we saw the Hollywood sign â€“ my first time to see it despite visiting LA on previous occasions!) and went to the Planetarium show. Wow, talk about Truth Questions, the narrator brought up the following questions:
- What is man?
- Why are we here?
- What is the earth for?
- And why does it matter?
What do you think?
This is the question that Bubbleology’s website said I could ask at their new bubble tea shop in central London. What do you think… were they able to give a satisfactory answer to the question? (And how was the bubble tea?)
