That is fascinating is that Scripture makes incredibly clear what we all know and feel–the human heart is easily distracted. Through many voices,God has communicated this truth. Though sadly, His is one voice many are absolutely uninterested in hearing. Even so, distractions abound. And undeniably, we see people all around us who are held captive by many things including time itself. But this is not unique to our culture or distinctive of the information age. Indeed, in the 16th Century, John of the Cross admonished: “Live in the world as if only God and your soul were in it; then your heart will never be made captive by any earthly thing.”
