GOOD MORNING EVERYONE! I am going to be headed to the other side of the state today, so if you all could pray for traveling mercies for us I would be forever grateful!
This may sound a little hypocritical since I am actually using technology to write this but I truly believe that at least for a designated time period we need to PUT IT DOWN.
From the minute we wake up to the minute we go to bed we have our phones, our tablets, and various other pieces of technology in our hands scrolling aimlessly through our different social media platforms. I know, I’m one of them. At least until yesterday.
Friends, there is so much data out there that shows just how addicting and dangerous it is to spend too much time looking at our technology. For many of us like me that have a desk job its even worse because we stare at a computer screen all day. Not only that but the social media world has become a cesspool of trash and filth. Why would we allow all that into our brains all day?
I’m not saying at all that we should abandon it; especially for those of us that are believers in Christ, its one of the few mediums that we can still proclaim His truth at will. What I am saying is that we need to be more intentional with our time. For example, here is something I have started..
One hour before going to bed I put away my phone and tablet and don’t look at it again the rest of the night. It gives my body time to detox, if you will, from the day and have some me time. Then in the morning, I don’t pick it up again until after I have read my Bible and get ready for the day. I did this for the first time last night and I can already tell a difference.
Friends, just like money, technology is not evil in and of itself. it only becomes that way if we let it rule our lives. I have a booming online ministry and have met many great people by using this platform, however, just like anything else we need to not let it consume us. Go outside, read a book, take a hot bath, do something that will get you to refocus and have a great day. Makes sense?
Have a great Sunday everyone!!
