beyond ourselves

It's easy to get caught up in our media world. The iPad 2. The latest technological gadget to make our lives easier. The app that find a parking space. We get that rushing sense of accomplishment, purpose, and power...only for a while. We think we can do it. We strive to reach beyond our capabilities at work, home, and elsewhere. That dream of reaching the unattainable seems within reach.

Don't think you can do it? Here is the tool. Just buy this thing. After this one, you'll be able to do it...wait, get this too. It's a never ending cycle that only ends when we depend on Him, then His desire become ours. Plus, you won't pay anything for God's love - a never ending resource and strength. So when will the "bubble" burst in our media world. When will we say enough is enough and stop our fickle habits including buying the latest craze then moving on to another one. The media wave never stops, so we have to determine its direction in our lives, not vice versa.

Don't Buy Stuff You Cannot Afford...
Just do it.

Is it really that simple? Can we deal with this concept on our own? How do we speak to others through our action and even our purchases?
