I Am A Uni-tasker.

I love Alton Brown.  You know, the celebrity chef?

Well, I love Alton Brown pre-Iron Chef days.  When he was less suave and more the quirky-could-be-your-home-ec-teacher kind of guy.  

One thing that he's said a million times is that he despises uni-taskers in the kitchen.  Gadgets and gizmos that occupy valuable kitchen space but only provide one limited purpose.

Apple core-er.  Uni-tasker.  Garlic press.  Uni-tasker.  Banana slicer, anyone?

What I'm realizing these days, however, is that God created me to be a uni-tasker.

You shall have no other gods before Me.  Exodus 20:3

Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God is One.  You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.  Dueteronomy 6:4-5

This is the first and greatest commandment.  Matthew 22:38

I am one person made to worship One God.  A uni-tasker.

I read recently (in How People Change), that my sin problem pours out of a worship problem.  It's when I walk away from my uni-tasked purpose - when I begin to multi-task, dabbling in other than what's best, sin is not far behind.

My heart and flesh cry out.  I want to worship You, Lord.  May my wayward heart forever long to stay in Your presence.
