Stuck & Squinting

wideinwonder

How far is my fixation on this handheld device coopting – even corrupting – my life?

Does staring into its ‘light’ feed my greed and my prejudices?

Does it fan flames of distrust?

Does it make my soul squint?

Does it darken my heart and mind against understanding?

 

Inspired by thoughts expressed so long ago, yet right now they seem more relevant than ever:

Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have!” 

The Message; Matthew 6:22,23
