Critical Thinker

What do attract people? How about you? Attracted to read this?


I want to talk about “Attraction”, what comes to your mind when you hear A-T-T-R-A-C-T-I-O-N? You may say love, or puberty, you become attracted to opposite sex when you reach puberty, right? Some may think too far ahead, like saying things about homosexuality and same sex marriage. Hmm, but right now, it’s not where we’re going, if I could say, we’re going further than that.

What I mean to say about “going further” is – thinking deeper, and farther from our everyday perspective. Let’s drop the charades! What I’m talking about is A-T-T-R-A-C-T-I-O-N towards GOD. Yes, being attracted to GOD and to the things related to GOD. Not yet clear? Let me put it this way – attraction is like a force that pulls you to something or someone. It is like a magnet that attracts a metal or metal that attracts a magnet. Same way for both magnets, given that they are in opposite poles.

Now, going back, our fingers are attracted to move and point the mouse to the address bar, attracted to click and type “f-a” then the search bar would automatically suggest Click, like, posts and repeat the process whenever there’s free time. Now, that’s A-T-T-R-A-C-T-I-O-N! It seems like there’s a force that pulls our little fingers to move on its own.

I’m just talking to myself, “What if there’s also a Force that pulls us to where our bible is?”, “What if there’s a Force that pulls your hands together and pray?”, “What if there’s a Force that attracts you to open your mouth and sing praises to the LORD?”. Now that’s the wrong question! Because there IS really a Force that attracts us to GOD! GOD Himself is the Force that attracts us to Him. Or to properly say, GOD attracts HIS people. It’s so obvious that a Christian should be attracted to Christian things, but not in this generation I guess. You can’t pray to GOD while reading Facebook posts, can you? Same way in reading the bible while clicking “like”, unless you’re using “auto like” I guess. Now, let me put the right question, “To what force you’re going to be attracted into?”.

Yeah I know you want to defend Facebook, Twitter or anything those kind, I also believe that GOD gave those things for us to enjoy. I know that you can write a 100-page antithesis concerning this, but it’s not about proving who’s right or wrong in the first place. Just imagine yourself at the presence of the Almighty GOD, would you draw your phone out of your pocket and start tweeting? Post it on Facebook? Selfie with The One True God then post to Instagram? Would you defend yourself in front of the LORD?

Obviously, it’s not just about the internet, it’s about our everyday lifestyle. Where do your hands pull you? Where do your eyes pull you? How about your feet? Your ears? Mouth?

To end our this, let me ask you this: WHAT IS THE GOOD FRUIT AND BAD FRUIT TODAY?

And I thank GOD that you were attracted to read this article. Cheers!

Thanks for sharing your article. When I first saw the title I thought about attraction and what draws me to certain people. I find it fascinating to learn from my friends. It is an awesome quality to take the time to share knowledge. I like to entertain and make people smile but I love reading the informative information that my friends share on Wikinut.

What I can say is that I'm attracted by good, intelligent people with a pinch of sense of humour. Good article!

The first word that came to mind when I read the word attraction was, "theme park." I am also attracted to intelligent and kind people, beautiful and spooky destinations, and words of wisdom.
