Our culture seems to be busier and more technologically connected than in any time in history,
and this requires more intentionality to stay in relationship with God and cultivate deeper relationships with others.
We must find ways to mitigate distracted living,
because it is diminishing our ability as Christ followers to live out Jesus’ greatest commandments:
to love God and love others.
This is a journey that never ends, and it is a journey that requires focus.
