Do You Have A “Butterfly Mind”?

monarch-butterfly-931632_1280According to J.I. Packer, “People nowadays are not encouraged to think systematically and at length about anything or anybody.

Our culture encourages us all to have butterfly minds, flitting from one thing to another without going deep into anything.”

What do you think of this indictment of modern society?

I’m the first to admit that at times I have such a “butterfly mind.” How about you?

And what is the antidote to this?

To hear what Mr. Packer says we can do to overcome the “butterfly mind,” check out this video in which Mark Jones interviews J.I. Packer. They discuss topics such as Cultivating Awe in the Presence of God, Christian Meditation and Knowing Christ.
