Apples to Apples

Rev 4:11"You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For You created all things, and they exist because You created what You pleased."

Someone posted on Facebook:  “I’m inviting all my friends over to my house so we can at least be together while we stare at our phones”!   I am so thrilled to have lived during the, “age of Apple”, with all its, “apps”!    Even my dad, who is 97 years young, said of his Apple, “I can go anywhere in the world, right from my living room!”

But what of the real beauty?  You know… the beautiful colors of a sun rise or sun set; a squirrel in the feeder; the birds in flight; the flowers in the bed; or the crops in the field…. in all of creation for that matter.  Or how about the real living persons you live with… your friends… their smile… their voices?

Lift up your eyes today, beloved.. away from the I-stuff, and rediscover that surely, God has done a greater work than Apple!

Oh, and remember… it was gazing at the “apple” that got us into this mess in the first place.
