Sometimes I am amazed that I can blog and keep up with other’s blogs from my phone. I catch myself thinking that this “smart phone” might be all the computer I need.
Need. Huh. What an abused word “need.”
For more than the first 30 years of my life I didn’t have even a perceived need to carry a phone around with me.
I finished seminary without needing a personal computer.
Now I feel sometimes like I need only a pocket-sized computer.
I vaguely remember as a teenager trying to convince my parents of needs that were really just desires. Now that I don’t have to convince parents, just myself, the line between need and desire hasn’t necessarily gotten any clearer.
What do you and I really need? If you are reading this, I suspect you have much more than you need.
God, help me gain perspective on the difference between wants and needs.
