Do you ever question things of the universe? Haha! This sounds like it is already getting too deep for me to even write about, but really…
Do you stay in thought more than a few minutes about why we as humans invented some of the gadgets we use today?
I mean, take for insance, the shoe lace? Were shoes NOT fine before then? I do see how the ability to adjust the tightness (or loose-ness) of a shoe is quite handy. What other benefits are there? Did things like this just pop into someone’s head one day out of inconvenience? I believe so.
We all have those things in our life which are just bothersome. Perhaps you wear shoes with no laces, but there are other inventions you wouldn’t know what to do without. Think about it–toilet paper (no need to go into detail), the t.v. remote (I was one of those for my house when I was little.), A PILLOW (what would you do with your big ‘ole head!) and INDOOR plumbling!!! That is just to list a few.
More recently, we have those cellular gadgets we carry around. Some people are very reluctant to allow those things to be a part of their lives while others make their world revolve around them. I’m a bit in the neutral zone on this one. I do like the convenience my cellular device allows me, but sometimes I know it’s important to be detached from the chaos it creates. Cell phones allow us to be in contact with anyone via voice or texting if they see fit to respond. The “smarter” version even allows us to ask questions, find answers or help us drive away the boredum in the check out line thanks to games or reading apps. They can be quite simple or fancy. Either way, the convenience is there.
As I said, though, we do need to find a way to get away from our constant attachment to this world. I challenge you to find your “quiet time” and put down that gadget. Get away from the television remote, the noise that comes from your stereo or your ear buds (which are usually attached to that gadget or one like it) and take a walk. Go check out the stuff God created for us before He allowed the inventions to make our life so convenient that we are able to even work in our pajamas and shop from anywhere that has a good connection. There is a great big world outside your door waiting to be gazed upon. Today is a wonderfully beautiful day that has seemed to be screaming at me to get out there and check it out. So, why am I on here (another invention of convenience) doing this blog? I DON’T KNOW! Meet me outside!
