What About Me?
I must admit, I am guilty as charged and I know that I am not alone. Have you ever got a thought or idea and in an instant, you subconsciously jumped on the keyboard, goto the web browser, and type in w-w-w.g-o-o-g-l-e.c-o-m. Make your request to the Holy Grail of search engines, and “voi-la” an answer from the “Google Heavens” gives you pages upon pages of listings from every angle you can think of. You scroll down with the anticipation of a shopper at the clearance rack searching for a deal, looking for the web page of your request. Honestly, the instant gratification is so satisfying in that moment, while secretly in the midst of your thoughts you hear a still small voice speak to you and say, “What about Me?”
Touched by Google…
I was reading an article in Laptop Magazine named “Is Google Good or Evil?” and it really made some interesting points. Google has made it really hard for us to stay out of its presence, being touched by it via G-mail, Google Maps, Google News, Blogger, YouTube (Google bought for billions of dollars…), Google Docs & Spreadsheets, Google Calender, and the list goes on and on. Pretty soon they will have a Google-branded cell phone called the GPhone. Where will they not be? Looking to get into every space we call home. Some will even go as far as saying they are omnipresent.
This company has successfully tapped into every human beings innate searching capability. The longing of every man’s heart is wired to know and to be known, especially by our Creator. Adam and Eve’s demise came through an opportunity to search. When we learn to set the “search browser” of our heart on the Knowledge of God, He will allow us to search His expansive data base that makes Google look like a drop in a bucket.
