Faith and Technology

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.

Psychology of Forgiveness

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. Or when you find it hard to get rid of that negative memory. Sometimes these recurring memories and feelings, make you question whether you have really forgiven them or not. So what do we do when we have forgiven but we still remember?

“Worship is worth-ship”

(Amazing word from Pastor Andy Elmes of Family Church - Part of my morning devotionals) Remember, worship is ‘worth-ship’ (the placing of your worth on someone or something). When you take time in your day to worship God you put your worth on Him; and yes, He so deserves it! A great key to remember is … Continue reading “Worship is worth-ship”

The Race Is Not To The Swift

Ecclesiastes 9:11 I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favour to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. Growing up this scripture was a huge consolation to me. … Continue reading The Race Is Not To The Swift

Got It All Together…?

You may have all the technique and technical stuff down when it comes to Christianity, but are you pursuing for more in God, more in your relationship with Him. Christianity is more than church, it is more than singing a slow song with your hands raised. God is not interested in the 'altogether' part of … Continue reading Got It All Together…?

#SamsonChallenge – Day Five

#SamsonChallenge - Day Five Read: Judges 16:1-22 and Proverbs 21:19 Although we talked about Samson being real with God in the previous chapter, after reading the beginning of this chapter, we can deduce that perhaps Samson wasn’t real with God about everything. https://twitter.com/JChrist918/status/505691387040649217 Was Samson still hurting from his betrayal and heartbreak, after his Philistine … Continue reading #SamsonChallenge – Day Five

#SamsonChallenge – Day Two

#SamsonChallenge - Day Two Read: Judges 14:1-11 and Galatians 3:28  Samson was clearly suffering from a case of ‘love at first sight’, although after reading the end of this chapter, we’d probably call it ‘stupidity in HD’. We can assume that Samson knew nothing about this woman who he wanted to make his wife, other … Continue reading #SamsonChallenge – Day Two
