Each of us were born into an era in which complexity has become the hallmark of our daily existence. As such, fragmentation of the mind is all but inevitable unless we take action.

Never before has there been a generation in human history besieged by more items competing for its time and attention than the generation in which you find yourself. Think of it – in his entire life, George Washington never spent a second watching a news update.

Complexity as a Benchmark

With each passing year, indeed each hour, greater amounts of information are generated at an accelerating rate. Increasing numbers of technological breakthroughs are continually being achieved without any pauses between such advances, for people to adjust to new situations.

Professor Lowell Catlett, an expert on the topics of technology and change, observed that, from a capability standpoint, all the high-tech products on your desk and in your home will be antiques (not high-priced antiques!) in a few years from now.

Moreover, technology manufacturers themselves are intentionally putting their own products to bed in shorter and shorter cycles.

New, but Markedly Improved?

Sony’s shelf-life (market life span) for high-tech products, for example, is less than 90 days. When Sony ships a product to an office superstore, Sony itself is near ready with an updated product that exceeds the capability or design functions of the previous shipment.

Sony contends that their estimated shelf-life will continue to diminish. Their mission is to make their own products obsolete with vastly superior products.

Why would they do this? Is it a company full of masochists or something? Suppose they actually achieve breakthroughs every few weeks. Doesn’t it wreak havoc on their employees, their distribution systems, and you as a consumer? The answer is a big fat yes.

At the same time, if Sony doesn’t constantly improve what they’re offering, then their competition will crush them. Every major manufacturer feels the same pinch. Consumers – you and I – generally have no idea what is hitting us.

Reality; Not Your Imagination

We’ve reached the point where the regulations, laws, news, information, and technologies that we’re ‘expected’ to know are leaving us overwhelmed, confused, and exhausted.

The infrastructure that holds society in place – the computer systems, the highways, and the energy that runs them all – is based on increasingly sophisticated systems and technologies.

If you notice that the world is getting more complex each day, and if you feel as if your own life is already overly complex, relax. You’re probably quite rational. These day, even when you’re simply minding your own business, life is becoming more complex.

The complexity is not a function of aging, or of having more responsibility, a bigger mortgage or higher rent, more children, or more of anything in your life.

Pioneers

Each of us are now pioneers in this brave new world. Mercifully, most of us are still able to ably proceed. Take time to pray, meditate, reflect, and/or simply relax.

For some people, peace of mind means reduced levels of stress. For others, it’s having more leisure time or fewer bills to pay.

Peace of mind might represent having control over one’s space – living in less clutter or having less to clean and maintain. For many people, having greater peace of mind is linked with spirituality or reverence to God.

Your quest for peace of mind could encompass one or more of the notions above, maybe even all of them.

What would life look like for society if God brought revival? Probably something like this:

Imagine a society where every morning begins with families gathered together, reading the Bible and praying for guidance, wisdom, and strength to live according to God’s will. As the sun rises, neighborhoods come alive with the sounds of worship music, and the aroma of shared breakfasts where neighbors regularly meet to encourage one another in their faith and discuss the Scriptures. Schools and workplaces start the day with prayer and a short devotional, setting a tone of humility, gratitude, and purpose for the day ahead.

Imagine a community where businesses operate with integrity and transparency, prioritizing ethical practices over profit. Employers and employees treat each other with respect and kindness, creating a workplace culture that reflects Christ’s love. Decision-making processes are guided by biblical principles, and customer service goes beyond transactions, aiming to serve and bless others. Financial success is seen as an opportunity to give generously and invest in community projects, ensuring that no one goes without their basic needs met.

Imagine a government that seeks to uphold justice and righteousness, drawing from biblical teachings to enact laws that protect the vulnerable and promote the common good. Leaders at every level are chosen for their godly character and wisdom, dedicating their service to God and the people they represent. Public policies are crafted with compassion and a commitment to fairness, addressing issues like poverty, healthcare, and education with a heart for restoration and hope. National days of prayer and fasting bring the country together, uniting citizens in their desire for God’s guidance and blessing.

Imagine churches overflowing with people eager to worship and learn more about God. Congregations are vibrant and active, with members participating in various ministries and outreach programs, sharing the gospel and meeting the needs of their communities. Sunday services are a time of joyous celebration and deep reflection, and the love among believers is palpable. Discipleship and mentorship flourish, with seasoned Christians guiding new believers in their spiritual growth. The church acts as a refuge and a beacon of hope, drawing people from all walks of life into a transformative relationship with Jesus Christ.

Imagine a culture where the arts, media, and entertainment reflect biblical values and the beauty of God’s creation. Music, films, and literature inspire and uplift, conveying messages of truth, redemption, and love. Social media platforms are used to spread positivity, encouragement, and the gospel, fostering a virtual community of believers who support and pray for each other. Public discourse is marked by grace and respect, even in disagreements, as people strive to see and treat others as image-bearers of God.

Imagine individuals living with a profound sense of purpose and identity rooted in Christ. Personal relationships are characterized by selflessness, forgiveness, and a genuine desire to honor God in every interaction. Families are strong and united, with parents diligently teaching their children the ways of the Lord and setting an example of faith and obedience. People find joy and fulfillment in serving others, seeing their daily activities—whether mundane or extraordinary—as acts of worship. In this revival of biblical Christianity, life is lived abundantly, to the glory of God, and the love of Christ transforms hearts, homes, and nations.
