:::day thirteen::: FAST FROM THE INTERNET

thursday, october 1
“Today we live in a media-saturated, internet-connected, cell-phone-equipped world in which everything that happens anywhere is available everywhere.” ~Richard Stearns, The Hole in Our Gospel
The internet allows us incredible access to information, communication, and entertainment, usually for our own personal benefit, but it also provides an easy “on ramp” to learning and being involved in different issues of global need. Lack of information is not the problem. The question is: has the increased awareness influenced the way we care for our neighbors, or caused us to become detached and indifferent to the constant images we see of human suffering? Today, only use your internet access as a means to educate and engage yourself in the plight of our worldwide family.
Have the images of poverty repeatedly bombarding our screens moved us into action or caused “compassion fatigue?”

Read... Job 30:25; Proverbs 19:17
