Whoever came up with that instinctively knows what scientists spent a fortune to prove. Electronic devices are as addictive as heroin.
Some of us spent hours daily in front of a screen, looking for fulfillment that once came from personal relationships with Jesus Christ, friends, and family. The hope of finding anything more uplifting than momentary pleasure in the internet or in an app is a false hope. At most, one might find a pale substitute for face-to-face relationships.
Real significance is derived only from personal interaction with God and with others. Texting a loved one, whether it be a spouse, or a parent, or child, is fine in a pinch, but how long would a marriage remain stable if we ignored time with our spouses? How would a child grow up who never knew a personal touch of a parent?
How would we grow our relationship with Christ if we never bow in prayer?
Do not swap time with your earthly family for time with your electronic devices. Do not swap time with God for time with your handheld false gods.
Lock yourself away from all electronic devices, grab a Bible – in book form – and bow down in prayer.
Fear Not, for God hears you. He will answer your prayer.
