IT'S AN ADHD WORLD: Part 1 - Do I Have Your Attention?
Then she called the name of the who spoke to her, “You are God Who Sees”; for she said, “Have I not even here [in the wilderness] remained alive after seeing Him [who sees me with understanding and compassion]?”
Genesis 16:13, AMP
Admit it. We live in an ADHD world.
Never before in history have humans been so tempted to mentally flit from one thing to the next. With information crowding and flying past us at the speed of light, we barely have time to focus or digest an item before it is forcibly shoved out by the next. The 24-hour news cycle has been a huge menace, driving this pace of life. We are outraged by a social injustice until our attention drifts to the news of another. We would barely remember there was a murder down the street a year ago if our addled, over-filled brains weren't reminded by the interruption of apps like Timehop.
