Are you living in your real life? Or living in life online? Real life is your life at home, with your children, with your husband. I look around when I go places, and it seems that people are expressionless, not really "there", or they're on their cell phones constantly and not paying attention to the people around them. I think it is sad that we have become so very attached to technology that it seems to run our lives. We can't imagine life without email, or the internet, or being able to call someone any time we want to. Social media is just about expected of everyone, and you almost can't get news from friends or family without it!
We do have a computer and internet, but I am thankful we do not have all the gadgets that are so prevalent in our culture. I have been busy ridding our home of clutter, and the more I do so, the more I am happy to have a simplified life. A life filled with less stuff, and filled more with the people I love and time spent with them.
Another thought is that we can so easily and immediately communicate with others, that we often forget or neglect to communicate with the One whom we should be talking with most! How many times have you put off reading your Bible because you had something else to read? Or run desperately to the phone or computer to ask someone advice without even asking the Lord first?
Technology isn't in and of itself, evil. But we need to be careful that we don't let it rule us. We need to use it as a tool, not be overcome by it. So will you join me and come back to real life?
