Give Me A Break

I was just pondering today about a truth that we often overlook...

In this crazy information age that we live in, where we have an unsatisfiable lust for more and new information... where we gather and gather and gather information, more sermon messages, more podcasts, blog articles, etc. as if our lives depended on it... do we ever take the time out to just revisit what we have learnt... to apply it... to evaluate it in our lives?

Most of the challenges we face are not challenges that we are helpless to face... for we have the information... its just the application that we lack.
Perhaps we need to just slow down... subdue that lust for information... and just look for ways to apply what we already know.

What have you heard in the past week / month that you need to apply?
If you're like me... you could write a substantial list.
Lets commit to applying what we got before we dash in a mad rush for the new!

I look forward to your comments!

Love the thought Clive
We die spiritually not as much through lack of infomation ,as we do through lack of application

As Christians,the truth is we are educated way beyond our level of obedience

I love the saying
"Take time to smell the roses"

Godspeed my Friend

My thought as I read this? You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.


I think churches in general get just as caught up in this 'mind'game too - we provide program after program, sermon upon sermon but rarely do we all get up and do something with what we have learnt. How often do we hear about the testimonies resulting from the previous weeks sermon? As a result of hearing blah I did blah?

Lol I almost want to introduce pay-by-photographic-evidence-that-you-applied-last-weeks-sermon passes which allow you to then hear the next sermon or not :P
