... in using a mobile
I recently decided to invest in a smart phone. This thing had a mind of its own and rarely did what I wanted until my son came to visit…
“Don’t stab the phone Mum” he said. “Keep your thumb near the screen and touch it gently and accurately.” I learned that when I ‘swipe’ it looks like I am hitting a golf ball up the fairway.
Ignatius (and the Bible) teaches that God acts on the willing Christian with a very gentle touch, just like I need to use my phone.
And what about the way I work with people? In discussion do I hammer home my point until the listener has such a headache that they cannot remember what I said? When I notice a fault do I try to banish it to eternity instead of giving a gentle nudge in a better direction?
Lord teach me your ways.
