Most computers today have the ability to multitask. That means they are able to run more than one program at a time. You could for example have your internet service downloading information in the background while you write a letter on your word processor at the same time.
Multitasking makes a computer more powerful and more useful. It help us to accomplish more in a given time frame than older computers which could only run one program at a time.
But multitasking isn’t just for computers. We as Christians can become more effective by leaning to multitask, especially as we include the spiritual realm. An example might be talking to the Lord in prayer while driving to work. It doesn’t take any longer to pray and drive than it does to simply drive, but it does allow us to do two things at once. And accomplishing two things instead of one means we’re redeeming the time.
