Mar 25 – The Smartphone Generation

Paisley Koskie, is a three year old girl, who, like many of her age, is also very tech-savvy She likes taking pictures of herself and sending them to her mother’s iphone. Her mother, Brandi Koskie says sometimes, “there’ll be 90 pictures.” While such activity can help build a healthy self-image, it can also be harmful. Deborah Best, a professor of cognitive developmental psychology at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem North Carolina believes it is going to be difficult later for kids to wait, being accustomed to the instant gratification that these smart phones provide. This selfish craving is one of the very best evidences of our fallen nature. Isaiah wrote, “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way…” But thankfully, referring to Christ’s death for us on the Cross, he added, “…the Lord has laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity of us all.”
