Mother Teresa said it best, "You can save someones soul, with just a smile." How many of us really understand this? Could it really be that easy? Try it sometime. While I was walking in New York last week, I was surrounded by the hustle and bustle of one of the worlds busiest cities. People walking the streets with cell phones attached to their ears or ear plugs for ipods and MP3 players. People "in their own zone" walking, and when you take time out to actually acknowledge someone, e.g. giving another guy the head nod "wassup nod", they are shocked and amazed that someone made contact with them.
We lock ourselves away in our own little virtual worlds, addicted to the Internet, where we can be someone else who we fantasize of being, living a lie, we leave the Internet and enter the MP3/iPod world, until we reach our next destination and log in. Do we ever take time to stop and smell the roses? Do we ever take time to stop and acknowledge Christ when He is trying to make contact with us, or are we locked away in a virtual world, on a call, "Jesus, hit me back in a few minutes when I am done with this call..."
