My New Phone

envyI got a new gadget a couple of weeks ago. I haven’t been able to post about it until now because we had an ongoing series of posts dealing with ‘7 Deadly Thoughts.’

After years of using AT&T Wireless, we decided to switch to Verizon Wireless because almost everyone we know is on that network.

Because I generally ride my bicycle everywhere, compact and light are important to me. That’s why my primary computer is an Acer Aspire One 8.9” netbook. It is also why I went with the enV Touch when it came time to buy a new phone. I wanted something I could keep my calendar on without having to whip out my computer. I also wanted to be able to post to my blog, facebook, and even twitter.  The enV Touch has all of that, so I am happy.

The funny thing about the new phone is that suddenly, I am connected to people. I am calling people, texting, and generally enjoying being connected. It is funny how one little piece of technology has completely changed my experience of long distance communication. I am actually enjoy talking on this phone.

This is why the Scriptures often speak of being RENEWED and REVITALIZED in the Spirit. It is not enough to just have the one nice thing you do all the time and is comfortably well-worn. The Spirit will renew things – doing the same thing in a different, fresh way. It keeps us on our toes, but it also opens doors to us that were there all the time but we didn’t see.

Just something to think about.

  1. So… about the time you gave the lesson on Envy? >.> That amuses me 🙂

    Good thought. The whole of Christianity is about change. Change makes way for opportunity, and opportunity, when handled maturely, cultures growth.
