If your world feels like it’s getting more complicated- it’s because it is! Focusing on what’s really important is difficult at the best of times. Now we have become even busier with all sorts of new distractions like email, smart phones, texting, Facebook, twitter and more. Baylor University in Texas released a survey recently stating that female undergraduates spend an average of ten hours a day interacting with their phones, while males interact for eight hours a day. Because we are all going to live somewhere forever let’s get our priorities right. Is it not time to heed Paul’s advice to be “redeeming the time” and to “seek those things which are above.”? Jesus admonished us to “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” YesI phones, smart phones, Facebook, twitter can all be useful for entertainment, communication and business. But let’s not allow them to so control us so much that we neglect the reality of the next life.
