We live in a digital age. Instant downloads, search engines, push notifications, algorithms designed to keep you distracted and keep you scrolling. Analog has fallen on hard times. Patient reflection is passé. This isn’t natural or good. Your mind isn’t a hard drive for quick sound bytes, but a heart drive for sustained reflection leading to transformation. “Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God” (Rom.12:2).
Christians can’t resign themselves to being conformed to the spirit of the age. Inspirational Bible verses without context, and “whatever strikes me” methods of reading, won’t form us as faithful followers of Christ. We must fight to reclaim our attention spans by forming regular habits of contemplation and prayer. Over the course of a few weeks, we’ll be offering our second equipping class of the season “Meeting with God.” Whether you’re a brand new Christian or have been following Jesus for years, this class is designed to help you learn and refresh the spiritual habits of Bible reading, meditation, and prayer.
