Not attracted, distracted!!
Ah! These modern days, we’re so busy.
We distract ourselves with microchip and 4G;
We always think it’s all about me.
I’m multi-tasking; I’m so modern.
That flicker of light, our mobile we delight!
We pick up up everything,
Before us, and in us.
We reach, we pick up, we….distract ourselves.
Did someone just text me?
Check my phone!
Did someone just Facebook me?
Check my phone.
Are my kids talking to me…..check my phone!
We are a distracted people.
A picking up people.
Let us pick up our phone, our facebook, our TV guide;
But let us not be Christian inside.
We think we’re free, but really we hide;
From the terror inside, the distraction we hide.
What do they think?
What did he say?
Who gives a damn, anyway?
Jesus said, “Pick up your cross.”
Not the dross, that is your boss;
Not the phone you think you own;
Nor the life that you’ve blown.
But the cross, from new life grown.
You don’t have to pick up the shit; take the hit.
Pick up the Cross;
It’s not your loss.
You lose your life, in His strife;
Come to Me, said He; Be free.
What are you picking up anyway?
Your phone, the TV guide, the Facebook like?
Your own little ego, fed every day….
…on the things that don’t fill; anesthetized will.
Pick up your Cross and follow Me!
That means putting everything else down;
It means no longer following self.
Check yourself now,
Do you have the courage?
I think I can hear your phone ringing……….
