Is TMI (Too Much Information) Keeping You from the Truth

There’s an old adage “You can’t see the forest for the trees.”  But in this age, we don’t seem to be able to see the trees for the forest either.

I remember being at Disney World with my grandchildren and losing sight of them.  I’d call to one or the other in rising panic as I looked out at the mass of people milling about.

“Here I am!”  With both arms waving, the kid had to get right in my face before I saw him.

I’ve sure you’re thinking that’s something that just comes with age, but I don’t think so.  I’ve come to realize that one can be so overwhelmed by information, it’s impossible to see the truth.

We’re living in the age of knowledge.  You can hold a little device the size of a pack of cards in your hands that contains more information than you can possibly ever read in a lifetime.  Yet the most avid users of those devices know less about what’s going on in the world (or around them) than at any time in history.  They hold the truth in their hands, but if it doesn’t entertain them, they’re not interested.

Schools present much more information than those of the 1960s and 1970s (I know, I was there), but children learn less today.  Apparently discipline is so lax, they aren’t compelled to learn, and unless they’re being entertained, they must be compelled.

Science has exploded with so much new information that most scientists think they know the origin of the universe.  They’ve gotten so close.  The truth is staring them in the face, but they can’t understand how God planned, created, and still manages the universe, including us.

If you’re frustrated with information overload and, unlike that guy on the X Files, can’t believe the truth is out there, I suggest you do as I did.  Take a deep breath and look inside your own heart.  That’s how you get to the truth.  The Holy Bible contains the only information I know of that promises to change the heart.  Try it.  It’s probably accessible on your mobile device.

I'm a retired Air Force (civilian) accountant living with my husband, Robert, and bichon-poodle mix, Buffy, in Warner Robins, Georgia. My interests are varied. I enjoy reading and writing Christian historical romances and inspirational commentary, golf, sewing, crocheting, knitting, politics, history, science and mathematics. I attend church regularly, and God is the center of my life. I'm proud of the good job my daughter is doing rearing my three wonderful grandchildren. God and my family make up the inner circle of my life, but I want to reach out with understanding and love to others.
