Law Professor Michael Geist, Chair of Canada Research in Internet and E- Commerce is shocked to learn that Bell Canada will soon start tracking how its customers use the web, their mobile devices, what they watch on TV, where they live, gender and age range. Such actions can cause concern and discomfort. The big question is who will see this private information and what will be done with it? The Psalmist informs us that our Maker already sees and knows all about us, writing, “O Lord…. You understand my thought afar off….are acquainted with all my ways.” It is natural to be concerned when fellow humans invade our private lives. But if we’ve “been justified by faith,” and “have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,” we can relax, knowing He always has our best interests at heart and uses information about us for our good and His glory.
