Personal Note by Pastor Alan
Did the dog get your attention? That's why I used it. We live in a world of information overload. When you scroll through Facebook, do you stop on the posts with pictures and skip those without? I do a lot of times. It seems that we have been trained to stop and look at catchy or cute or compelling pictures.
Have you ever thought about the ways God tries to get your attention? As believers, if we are not careful, we will tune God out because He doesn't catch our attention like the dog did. And yet, His pictures are all around us in creation, in His Word, in other people, and the way the Holy Spirit speaks to us. Our main problem is we just aren't interested in His message like Facebook posts without a picture or cartoon.
God is so much more interesting than anything else we give our attention to. Let me encourage you to look for God this week and discover His message to you.
