Going wireless with life

Growing spiritually is an amazing, soul-feeding thing that happens when God becomes so central to life, to being. And yet at points on my spiritual journey, I’ve felt reluctant to “leave all for Christ” for fear that I will become an ascetic and lose touch with those I love. But what does it really mean to love God with “all your heart and with all your soul” (see Josh. 22:5). What is lost and what is gained? Does spiritual devotion equal coldness and solitude?

The other day, while I was sitting in my office, a cardboard box perched on top of some file boxes caught my eye. On the side of the box were the words wireless router. Hmm. I thought back to the days before wireless Internet. Remember when we had dial-up and ethernet cords to connect us to the Internet? What a revolution it was to have the option to go wireless—moving from the tangible to the intangible! At first, it may have been unthinkable that we would relinquish our secure cords for this wireless connection. But now having weathered the transition myself, I can attest that a wireless connection has enhanced my Internet use. With Wi-Fi, there’s an even faster, more versatile connection.
