On Demand

Babies have no clue about how life works, expressing themselves (from both ends) without restraint.  They live on MST (“MY Standard Time”).  Marketers appeal to the child in us by making almost anything our hearts desire available ….. ON DEMAND.  

We users (or “abusers”) order what we want, when we want it.  Often we can rewind it, freeze-frame it, zoom in or out, fast-forward it, save or delete it!  We demand control over what causes pain and what gives pleasure.  Maybe gratifying our needs instantly is not how our Maker wired us for maximum performance.

After spending three years with our OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer), Peter wrote, “The Lord isn't slow to do what He promised, as some people think.  Rather, He is patient for your sake. He doesn't want to destroy anyone but wants all people to have an opportunity to turn to Him and change the way they think and act.”

God’s been patiently waiting for you.  And you’re waiting for what?
