“Google it” has become a common phrase in our collective lingo, and we are all familiar with the Google search engine. You can Google anything: Why do roosters crow anytime of the day? Why are glaciers melting? Why do socks disappear in the dryer? The whys are endless, and the answers are at your fingertips.
Internet search engines are also useful for doing research on any topic imaginable, from history to medical issues to taking care of pets. Any information we desire is attainable with a computer. The ease with which we can learn about the world around us is amazing.
But what if we could create the ultimate search engine, one that would seek out the answers to life’s most challenging questions? Why can’t I find my one true love? Why can’t I have a baby? Why can’t I find a job? Or perhaps more importantly, we could ask the questions involving what: What can I do for my neighbor who is suffering? What can I do to help the children in my town who don’t have enough to eat? What can I do to help the homeless find a better life? These soul searching questions are endless. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to type these heartfelt queries onto the screen, click search and receive an answer to these difficult questions that keep us up at night?
If I knew anything about computer technology, software and the like I would attempt to create this incredible tool. This search engine would need a special name. Remember the acronym that became popular a few years back” WWJD? What would Jesus do? Type in your questions and instantly receive the best knowledge possible. After all, this should be the measure by which we evaluate all of our decisions.
With our operating system, we could link up all of Jesus’s words from the Bible, using them to evaluate whatever issue a person enters in the search engine, thus giving them an answer that is in keeping with how Jesus would have us live. His example would guide us.
This all seems very familiar. I don’t think we need a fancy operating system like Windows to help us search for these answers. I think this kind of search mechanism already exists in our hearts, placed there by a loving and gracious God. We need only read His words, and keep them in our hearts and minds and then when these difficult questions arise in life, He will help us find our way to His answers.
