The news release tells that a man tried to cancel his Comcast subscription and the phone representative continued to stall and even harrass him for wanting to do that. After 10 minutes the frustrated customer recorded their conversation and released it to the media. Comcast issued an apology. Either this phone representative is a very persistent person or it revealed that Comcast had encouraged their representatives to treat customers in that way. The recording revealed the wrongness.
I was thinking that maybe God will help Christians in the same way with our culture struggles. Some cultural changes are needed and I'm all for that but some are just a sign of the times we live in. Maybe God might help us to 'record' in some way the effects of these changes so that it will clearly show the wrongness. That's my prayer.
Which leads to me. I may not be able to record a conversation that shows the wrongness of a conversation or cultural change but I can 'record' myself. People used to read out loud so that they could actually hear what they were reading. THis allowed their brain to really soak up the content. In our busyness we often just read silently but if we actually prayed out loud we would hear what we are saying and that 'recording' would allow us to hear and evaluate what we are saying. Maybe we would catch ourselves asking vengeance or for silly things - wrongness ... God would help us correct ourselves and we would truly be "Reading our thoughts"!
