Very few people do not have a smartphone. Most of us are connected to our phones. I had to get my phone’s battery replaced and wondered how long I would have to be without my phone. We can hardly imagine life without one. We like to think we are staying connected to people we care about. Hmm, really?
Do you find yourself texting more and talking less? When was the last time you went over to a friend’s house? We enjoy the company and leave feeling satisfied and connected.
It seems technology is being used to distract and divide. I want to go back to some old paths. Instead of getting a coffee at a drive-thru Starbucks, let’s visit a friend and have a cup of joe.
“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
I don’t want to try doing this alone. I want to be connected to Jesus. Get your Bible, a cup of coffee or tea, and let’s reconnect to the best friend we’ve ever had.
