Over 100 years a lot of change happens but some things haven’t changed.
10 Things That Haven’t Changed
10. Can you appreciate just how timeless an invention the train was? Steam has been replaced by diesel engines, but trains are still doing the same thing in much the same way.
9. The cell phone radically changed the way we connect with each other, but the old landline is still alive. And hard to match in terms of clarity. And reliability. When is the last time you lost a signal on your land-line or accidentally dropped it into the loo?
8. There simply isn’t an easy way to get the wrinkles out of clothes. We’ve traded stove heated irons for electric ones, but ironing is the same tedious art form it has always been.
7. Many predicted the demise of books since the advent of Kindle and Kobo.
The fact is – nothing beats the good old paperback in terms of portability.
6. The modern vehicle is a far cry from the ones of 1917, but how different is it really? Heated seats and cupholders aside, the basic automobile remains largely indistinguishable from 1917.
5. Sailboats still harness the wind to move large ships across the water with minimal effort and cost. The sailboat is one of the most timeless inventions in human history.
4. The piano, guitar, mandolin, violin, drums, trumpet, saxophone – you name it – are still made and performed much the way they were in 1917.
3. Since Thomas Edison produced the first light bulb, not much has changed in the overall construction over the last century.
2. The porcelain (or wooden) throne has stood the test of time. A remarkable piece of engineering. Thomas Crapper was one of the great innovators of the modern toilet. True or False? Post your answer below.
1. North Pointe celebrated 100 years of devotion to God in 2017. The house below is where it all started.
There is no “turning” with God. He is faithful, timeless, changeless, always loving and good.
The invitation to “come as you are” to God is unchanged through human history.
Jesus’ words ring true today – “Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest.”
