The ding of the oven timer signaled its time to take the brownies out of the oven. Now do not get excited, this non-baker used a box mix. Sorry for the disappointment. Anyway… While sniffing the delicious chocolaty goodness, my mind wandered from that ding to…
- The sing-song of the cell phone ringtone
- The awakening bong of the alarm clock
- The jarring honk of a car horn
- The chiming of the door bell
… All attention grabbers, some welcome while others not, demanding an immediate response.
Hmmm… do we jump to action as quickly and eagerly to the persistent yet loving call of our Maker? (Psalm 119:1-8)
