My son has been wanting a multi-color pen to use as he makes notes in his Bible. We got him one today. He was so excited that when we got home from the store, he went straight to his Bible. A few minutes later, he is showing me his pen clipped to his Bible. He then said, "Look, my God phone has an antenna now." Now, in all fairness, the statement was made in jest. However, the profoundness of that statement from a 10 year old really struck home for me.
In this day and age, almost everyone has a cell phone. We can call anyone at anytime... and admit it, if we are not able to reach someone instantly, we become a little aggravated. Knowing that, I have to ask, how often do we dial up God by turning the pages of His word? How often do we pull out the "antenna" and mark verses, or write down insight He is sharing with us? When was the last time you used your "God Phone"? Think I'll go pick mine up now.
The LORD came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!”
Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.” 1 Samuel 3:10
