Finding Hidden Treasure returns after a long absence. Episode 116 is a discussion of how easily we are distracted. The 17th century theologian and philosopher Blaise Pascal observed how we are distraction-seekers, even to our own hurt. The discussion looks at some modern examples of this. It concludes by encouraging us to recognize our capacity for self-distraction and to seek to live a Christ-focused life.
