The Theology of Calvin . . . and Hobbes (Inconvenient Life)

Life can be, sometimes, inconvenient. But we were never meant to live life by simply clicking and kicking back. Good, honest work is not the result of the fall in the Garden of Eden. Weary work, fighting thorns and thistles, is! And isn’t it true that some of our best lessons in life are learned from what we might call the nuisances, the wasted times, the annoying human interaction?  Your thoughts?

Digital Detox! A Challenge!

“For the majority of human history, people lived without the distractions of endless shows to stream or never-ending scrolls on devices glued to their faces that never turn off and never cease to distract. While there are many enjoyments to be had in this digital age, we largely don’t need any of them.

The effect of being connected to thousands of people on our phones is a neglect of the people living under our roof and next door. We are missing out on enriching relationships with people who could be part of the network and support system we need to bear our burdens, know us, and be known by us. I would start by deleting social media apps from your phone and restricting this kind of engagement to mornings or evenings.

From there I would suggest unsubscribing from most cable, dish, and streaming platforms. No one needs to have the appetite for television at the level many of us have today. It should give us pause that today someone can consume seasons of a TV show in a few days that a previous generation took many years to enjoy. The time gained from spending less time with our phones and shows can be better spent cultivating relationships with flesh and blood human beings.” (from Redeeming Warriors by Josh Holler)

Dangerous Technology!


I’m all for technology, but it can be incredibly dangerous at times, right? And sometimes technology is just a way to facilitate our laziness. I remember when one had to get up out of one’s chair and go to the TV to turn it on — and sometimes stand there holding the rabbit ears with the aluminum foil so the TV channel would come in clearer. Anyone else remember that? Have a good day!

Commanding Everything! Time for a Great Commercial!


If only everything in life listened to you! Yeah, that would be great, would it not?
No! Because we are not GOD! And catering to a person’s desire to have everything obey him (even something as simple as “Find the cat!”) is tantamount to defying man, right?

Technology can be great — but man still needs a Savior, right?
