Mohler Helps Christians Think About Steve Jobs (A)
Everyone has heard now that Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, died last evening. I read about it on my iPad before I went to sleep. I look forward to reading more about his leadership genius in the days ahead.
But one thing I, as a Christian, must work hard at is how to best think through this (and how the modern world is thinking about it). Al Mohler is always VERY helpful in offering biblical perspective.
I encourage you to click here to read an article he posted this morning.
Here’s a brief portion:
“Christians considering the life and death of Steve Jobs will do well to remember once again the power of an individual life. God has invested massive creative abilities in his human creatures. These are often used for good, and sometimes deployed to evil ends. Steve Jobs devoted his life to a technological dream that he thought would empower humanity. He led creative teams that developed technological wonders, and then he made them seemingly necessary for life in the digital age. . .
“Christians know what the world does not — that the mother tending her child, the farmer planting his crops, the father protecting his family, the couple faithfully living out their marital vows, the factory worker laboring to support his family, and the preacher preparing to preach the Word of God are all doing far more important work. . .”
