The 21st century has been called the era of science and technology (and now data), especially with technological developments over the last few decades.

The world wide web, www. has made information from around the globe widely available.

If used correctly, it would save us time.

We can navigate new places with ease.

We can send instant messages.

We can share photos and videos as never before.

Modern technology has given us better communication means.

We can inquire about anything that comes across our minds.

The average person spends 6-8 hours on their phone a day.

How many hours do you spend on your phone?

We cannot imagine a life without the technology on our phones.

Are we wiser people?

Has technology made us better communicators?

Every day, more and more people are using text or instant messages and/or other instant networking sites to communicate with one another.

Every day fewer and fewer people choose to meet in person or even talk on the phone.

Facebook CEO himself clearly states, “Facebook exists to connect every person in the world.” In 2004 when Facebook was created, it was for the local connection, but today, we can have a global connection through a more robust network.

Due to the technology through aps we can photoshop any picture creating a perfect world for others to see.

However, in reality, we live far from a picture-perfect world. A world of busyness, messy homes, lawns needing to be mowed, kids needing attention, and dirty dishes. The list could go on.

All of this said, the Bible urges us to seek wisdom above all things.

Proverbs 4:7

To seek Godly wisdom. Be very careful how you live – not as unwise but wise, making the most out of every opportunity.

Ephesians 5:15-16

The wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. God wants us to seek wisdom through the scriptures, making us wise unto salvation. We will trade earthly value for biblical value, preparing ourselves and others for eternity.

2Timothy 3:15-17

Pastor Scott penned, “Never before are we a people drowning in information and opinions while starving for true wisdom.”

Let’s spread the truth.

Until next time, Pam.
