Technology is a tool and like any tool it can be used for good or for bad. A knife can be used for cooking, a hammer or axe for building, but both can be used for harm. The tool has no morals or values, it is the user that brings their morals and values to the use of that tool. This is the same with technology. The psychologist in me makes me understand another aspect of the use of technology as a tool. Anything that we use creates or exerts a degree of change in us, whether we realise it or not. For example, when you constantly use a pen or knife, after a while you may see an impression on your hands and fingers. Similarly, our use of technology creates impression marks on our minds which primes us for future activities, decisions, habits, expectations and relationships.
While it is very easy to ‘passively’ forgive an offender, with a simple ‘I forgive you’, the challenge comes when you are reminded of their offence every time you see them.

So what do we do when we have forgiven but we still remember?

I have a small but serious problem with messages like this. It almost minimises the responsibility of men to get … Continue reading Construction Workers

When do you call on God? What are the things, situations or circumstances that move you to reach out to God - or to even acknowledge His existence and sovereignty? When I asked, most people via a twitter poll said that they are more likely to call on God 'if something bad happens' as opposed to when something good happens.
I love Jesus Because He first loved me and gave me the capacity to love in spite of my hurt, my past and sinful state. I love Him because He saw beauty in what the world saw as ugly. He never gave up on me. He pursued me endlessly. He transformed my mind. He gave … Continue reading I Love Jesus Because…
Last night, I prayed, worshiped, prayed some more, worshiped some more and got frustrated at not 'feeling' God. I needed Him to remind me that He was right there with me. That He heard every word and sigh. That He met with me in worship as He promised to. In my frustration, I said, 'Abba, … Continue reading I just don’t ‘feel’ God…
