While being sandwiched in a crowded MRT, I observed how people are using their smartphones or books to form their personal space.
Heads down, eyes on their screen, earphone on—like a fortress to protect their personal space, when they have little choice but to share more than what they like of their physical space.
So many people being together, yet not connected, alone in their world.
That’s when I thought of this irony:
Questions to ponder: Is there anything that we can do about this? Is there a need to?
The thief comes to steal and kill and destroy.
What am I allowing the thief to rob and destroy in my life?
• Peace – My anxiousness in wanting to get an unreasonable amount of things done within one day.
• Joy – Taking things for granted by sometimes by forgetting that EVERYTHING can be taken away. God gives, and He can take away.
• Relationships – I think this is the devil’s forte for me. I sin through my blindness in failing to see how Jesus sees other rather-difficult-to-be-liked people.
