I read recently that people are becoming "infobese." And it's so true.
News websites; social networking sites; blogs of all kinds; online shopping sites... All are worthy of our attention...
But while none of that is bad, it becomes a problem when it takes up so much of my time. So much of my energy. So much of my brainpower. That leaves me impatient with my family, unable to focus and concentrate on the things they need from me, exhausted from trying to "fix" things that mean nothing personally to me.
Sure, no man is an island -- I wholeheartedlly believe that we should have empathy for one another, hold each other up in prayer -- but my priorities need to be in the proper order for that to work.
The Bible tells us in Luke 12:34: "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
If my treasure is my family and my job is to take care of them......then how am I actually doing?
Is my heart there for them?
