Better than Google
To google, or not to google? That is the question. At least, it was for me recently when a friend mentioned some alarming symptoms of a physical condition she was dealing with. What she told me was so unusual and concerning that the first thing that went through my head was: What could have caused that? With the question came a strong impulse to do what I always do when I need information quickly: google.
I’ve been tempted more than once to launch the Google app on my phone in response to a mysterious illness or some other alarming problem. I know lots of people who have been. Sometimes, that temptation comes from fear—a fear that we hope Google will alleviate by telling us we don’t have any reason for concern. Other times, like in this case, the thought that was bugging me was one that said: If you don’t know what she’s dealing with, how can you pray effectively?
I asked myself: Is googling going to help me pray most effectively?
