When it comes to buying technology, the key is to avoid extremes in either direction. By that I mean you don’t want to be the first to get something but you don’t want to be the last to get it either.
The first people to buy the new gadget or software pay too much for something that still hasn’t had the bugs worked out of it. The last people to buy miss out on the productivity that comes with staying up to date. They appear dumb and out of touch.
Jesus said, “I am Alpha and Omega.” That means the A and the Z or the first and last. Just as there is no letter before A or after Z, there was nothing before Him and there will be nothing will be after Him. It’s best to let Him keep the title of First and Last while you and I, at least when it comes to technology, strike a middle ground as a way to redeem the time.
