Technology-Tool? or Idol?
© 1999 Debbie Turner Chavers
Today we are flooded with technology. The ability to check in or check out with a finger tip. Often the technology strips away our humanity and leaves us with a social facade. We hide behind the tech cover. Many have fallen beneath the allure of checking out. It has become easier to live life at "screens length".
There is a need to regularly do a "soul check" of our use of technology.
Have you replaced one on one time with others, with social media?
It is difficult to have a meaningful relationship with anyone, when there is a screen of any kind in between you and another human.
When technology steals from your soul, mind, or body, it is an idol . Technological use without benefit of Holy Spirit led instruction can be a tool of destruction.
Prayerfully consider your use and time with technology. Is it a tool that is being used properly by you or an idol? Has it replaced time with God or loved ones?
Technology can be used for good. I use technology on a regular basis. My ability to post this online is a use of technology. Yet, I must guard the way I use and spend my time with it, as to not exclude the true benefit of having healthy one to one communication with others.
To not allow the screen to replace the beauty of face to face human interaction in our daily life.
I want to encourage you to communicate today ..in person, if possible.
Remember your truth may change daily as you learn, but Jesus is the Truth, He does not change.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Hebrews 13:16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
