Steve Jobs

MV5BMTM5NTQ3MTYxN15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODE2Nzk3OQ@@._V1_SX214_Usually I’m the last one to see new movies, but on the way home from Budapest Monday my computer eventually ran out of battery power, and so I watched a fascinating biographical drama about Steve Jobs. JOBS is a 2-hour, PG-13 movie tracing 40 years of Steve Job’s career. He started as a pot-smoking, loose living hippie from my era and over the course of his life became one of the most revered men in the world through his genius at developing Apple computers, i-pods, and i-phones.

Watching JOBS has given me a lot of empathy for the difficulty of my oldest son’s work environment as a software developer. Brilliance and innovation, needed yesterday and delivered today, seems to be the norm when you get near the top of the computer world. Did I mention that Aaron has now moved from Twitter to Facebook? I might have to break down and watch The Social Network next…

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” (Colossians 3:23-24)
