Goodbye Steve…

I’m not the world’s biggest Apple fan. I mean, I love their products, but I’m no geek about them. I had never really known much about Steve Jobs either, beyond the basic information about him.

Yet, on Wednesday when my husband came home and asked me if I had heard the news, I was struck with deep sadness for him and his family. I was quiet for a few moments and then I said to my husband, “All that influence, all that money, and none of it matters. If we don’t know Christ, none of it matters.”

I’m not sure what Steve Job’s relationship with God was like, but I pray he had one…

Someone commented on the radio, that Steve Jobs was not a Churchill or some other great political figure. He was, however, a Benjamin Franklin or Thomas Edison. He was and will remain the great inventor of our day–a brilliant mind that challenged life as we know it.

It will probably generations from now before his brilliance, vision, and ingenuity is matched…if ever. Thanks Steve. We will miss you…

  1. Steve was an inspiration. My favorite quote of his was this:

    ‎”[Y]ou can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” –Steve Jobs

    He didn’t mention God in his list, but it was easy for me to insert God into that concept, and I drew strength and hope from his expression of that concept.

    I have loved Apple products over the years. It was useful when the application, operating system, and hardware were all made by the same company – as was the case with the Final Cut Pro video editing system I used for many years. Stuff just worked well when that was the case.
