The Myth of Multitasking
As I was coming into work this morning, I got stuck behind a car that sat through a green light. That’s right. Light turns green and they don’t move. The guy in front of me was talking on the phone while rummaging through some papers on his front seat. (I’m glad I was coming to church. I needed it after that.)
What I wish I could have told the guy was, “Listen, you can only do one thing at a time. Multitasking is a myth.” That’s right. Multitasking is a myth. You can’t drive and talk on the phone. Distracted driving now causes almost as many accidents as driving under the influence. You can’t write email and talk to your co- workers; your attention will be on one or the other. You can’t text and drive. We are designed to do one thing at a time, and then move on.
Jesus knew this a long time ago. He commanded us to love God and love God alone. How can you do that? You can when every aspect of the believer’s life is done to the Lord (Colossians 3:17). When I love my wife, I love God. When I do my work, I am loving God. He is the center that holds everything in its orbit. We can only do one thing, and loving God, however many ways we express it, is the only thing we must do.
So, here’s the question: How many things is your heart trying to do right now?
