Do you have a smart phone?  If so, is it an iPhone?  Is it old or is it the newest version out of the factory?  I have a smart phone.  I’ve often said I may have a smart phone, now all I need is a smart operator.  The technological capabilities on smart phones are mind blowing.
Apple recently announced the launch of the iPhone 5.  People were able to place an order for one on the website as early as 3 a.m. last Friday.  People were setting alarms to wake them up in the wee hours of the morning so they could get online and be ready the moment the clock ticked 3 a.m. Apple planned to deliver most orders this Friday; however, they’ve said the demand for the iPhone 5 topped over 2 million in the first 24 hours, more than double the amount of its predecessor over the same period.  Due to the overwhelming demand, some will have to wait until October to receive their new phone.
The outlandish international pursuit of the latest and greatest in phone technology astounds me.  It is a tool.  It has limitations.  It can help us up to a point, but even the iPhone 5 has its limits.
How many of us pursue the Creator of all things with as much passion and persistence as we pursue things? How many of us get up at 3 a.m. to pursue the Lord?  His possibilities are limitless [Matthew 19:26, Luke 1:37]. He is our source of help in all things [Psalm 18:6].  He doesn’t have to recharge His battery [Psalm 121:3]. He is just a whisper away.  All we have to do is call upon the name of the Lord, and He is there [Psalm 116:1-6]. Thankfully, we don’t have to go into a cuing system and hope to be the next in line. 
Here me in this, there is nothing wrong with having an iPhone or any other type of smart phone; however, when we pursue things more than we pursue the Lord, we have a problem.
What are you pursuing today?
