Some People Are Mean.
Some Politicians Are Meddling.
Some Products Are Misleading.
No matter how you add it up, it’s all SPAM to me.
I get too much SPAM.
I’m not just talking about unwanted email messages. I’m talking about unwanted info. Too much input.
Junk mail in my mailbox. Pop-up ads on my computer. Pseudo-reality on the TV. Annoying posts on Facebook.
And don’t even get me started on Twitter.
Everywhere I turn I get another opinion, another blog, another political commentary. Everywhere I look I see another link to click, another coupon to redeem, another group to join.
Can you hear it? The babble? It seems like it’s everywhere these days. A constant cacophony of gossip and rhetoric and sarcastic remarks, all punctuated by cute pictures of kittens in roller-skates or somebody’s spectacular wedding disaster.
I think it’s getting louder! The you-know-what is getting deeper! The SPAM is taking over!
Sometimes I just want to yell
Sometimes I pray for God to knock over this tower of babel and send us scurrying. But then I think…
A tower? With all this noise and confusion, how could any of us accomplish anything so grand? No, we have created a tower of SPAM, and something has to give.
Hmm. Maybe if I’m a little less vocal, and you’re a little less vocal, we’ll find some peace and quiet.
I don’t know. It seems like alone, we’ll never make it. It would take a miracle to calm this storm.
But God came in a still small voice.
And Jesus calmed the raging seas.
And the Spirit finds the quiet center.
So… Predict A Miracle.
Faith In Love Trumps Every Racket.
Have a good week,
