The ONE THING for today

Is it OK to still have dial-up internet?

Do you know there are over ninety million people in the United States who still use dial-up internet?

I can’t bring myself to scold them or get on my high horse and pontificate about the need to stay current, adapt to change, and keep up with progress.

“The most” does not determine the best.  New does not equal progress for everyone.

All “the most” determines is that the majority has given something a nod, it does not determine whether or not it is important or of value.

Most people eat fatty foods full of starch and sugar; is that good?

Most people break the speed limit by at least a few miles per hour when they drive; is that good?

Most people do not go to church regularly; is that good?

Most people do not read their bibles daily; is that good?

Most new couples just live together instead of getting married; is that good?

I could go on with this litany, but you get the picture.

I really like my high-speed internet and for the work I do it is a huge help.  But if you’re one of those ninety million who are still using dial-up, hey, no problem with me.  There are bigger fish to fry than how fast your internet is (or even whether or not you have internet).  It may take you a little longer to “fry that fish” on your dial-up internet but then who said everything has to be done fast?

  • The ONE THING for today: Don’t let the majority outvote you on everything.  One of the reasons most things are valuable is because they’re rare.

but one thing is necessary.  Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.

Luke 10:42
