Romans 1:25 – because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
Sadly these days I am witnessing more and more of people placing their trust in the things of this world. I try to be understanding to the way the world has caught people up into it. That is the sin of the world, following its ways. But in all the thinking we do about it, it comes down to one thing only, you are a slave to whatever controls you.
So if you are spending time looking at your cell phone instead of giving the person in front of you attention which that person deeply desires you to do, then that cell phone is controlling you, ok, Really? A piece of metal over a human being?
So it is said with God, if you are not giving God your full attention then how can you ever see the blessing? I have been guilty of this myself, I spend a lot of time in front of the computer but one day I thought I am missing life by sitting here letting this run my days. You know why? Because I exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshipped the creature rather than the Creator, I stopped and started spending time away from the computer and taking a walk or getting something accomplished elsewhere.
Do you see yourself here, doing and running after things that are empty? Then step back and see what God can do in your life once you put down the things that control you.
