Contemplation – A Diminishing Exercise

Given the speed at which information travels, the frantic pace most of us keep, and the constant exposure to a materialistic culture, it is getting increasingly more difficult to be content. Add to that the cultural norm that we are entitled to be happy and its pursuit should be a primary goal, it is truly an uphill battle to stay focused! I was reminded lately of the importance of being still, of the value in reflecting and remembering God’s faithfulness over the years. Include on that list the idea of contemplating the invaluable times with loved ones, not those filled with business but more the ‘camp fire’ experiences. Don’t you just exhale thinking about these things? Being content takes work and a requirement is setting limits on how much we will let the distractions pull us off track. “Be Still and Know that I Am God” – me thinkest this is relevant instruction from a reliable source.
