For a few weeks my computer has been freezing. Late last Thursday I found out why. A young man showed me the video card. The fan was askew. It had melted. But…he had good news-“No damage done and there’s another video card in there anyway.”
It occurred to me this was yet another example of Matthew 6:24
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other…”
My computer could have been destroyed. Trying to resolve which card to use was too much. It overheated, could have caught fire, and was slowly destroying itself. Now that conflict, that other master is gone, it’s once again zipping along, and it no longer has to make that logic test-which commands to obey. And that felt really familiar.
If conflict would do that to my computer–what does it do to me? I don’t want to “freeze” or “overheat” or “meltdown” like my old buddy here. So through my computer, God provided an object lesson…in an amazing way and one I wanted to share today,
