I heard an interesting item on the news this morning concerning hybrid cars. Before anyone points it out, I know this is not a hybrid car 🙂 – when this car was made, the only known hybrid things were probably roses 🙂 !
The news item was about people buying hybrid cars that run on both electricity and petrol in order to help the environment, and they have been receiving a government subsidy designed to encourage people to switch to this better alternative. However, the question is, when is a hybrid not a hybrid? Well, when you don’t use it as it was intended! It seems that people have been using these cars as normal vehicles, running on petrol all the time, and many have never actually been connected to any electric socket. Naturally this negates the benefit of having a hybrid vehicle in the first place since it is actually USING the electric facility that helps the environment, not just having that ability.
It just occurred to me that people are like that. We are all ‘hybrids’ having both a physical side and a spiritual side! That’s what makes us complete people. The problem is that whilst everyone connects with the world, not everyone connects to the spiritual. We spend a lot of time interacting with worldly things, and lets face it we have far too many ‘things’, but we need to remember that we should tap into the spiritual too. We need to ‘plug into’ God to feed the spiritual because if we don’t, that side of us is useless and we are not complete people as we were intended to be – something is missing! What you feed grows, and what you starve dies, so feed all of you and don’t let the spirit die!
Think about it!
Be blessed and thanks for reflecting with me.
