When our senses are overcharged, we fail to see what is beyond
The strength of any structure or engineering marvel is not necessarily shown by its exterior. Its strength is based on how well its foundations are built and to which object it is anchored to.
The age of social media can easily stimulate our senses based on what we see. But do we ask if there is something more or beyond what we see, or do we forget since we are too carried away?
It is only an illusion that we have to act instantaneously. Sometimes, it pays to pause, discern, and discover for ourselves whether what we see is based on a strong foundation…
Or if we are just being fooled by style with no substance.
Luke 6:43-49. “Such a person is like the man who, when he built a house, dug, and dug deep, and laid the foundations on rock; when the river was in flood it bore down on that house but could not shake it, it was so well built.”
