Step Away From the Technology

Description

Ask God to help you see when and where technology and social media are pulling you away from Him.

“Be still and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10

THINK

Social media is great! It allows us to connect to our world more than ever before. We can see what’s happening with anyone, anytime, anywhere. To put it one way, it’s a great tool. But if we aren't careful, it can also become a tail—a tail of a vicious pit bull that pulls us away from truly connecting with others and with God.

As you look at your social media interactions, ask yourself what they are really doing in your life. Are they drawing you closer to others, or keeping you from truly connecting? Are they bringing you into a closer relationship with God, or distracting you from spending the kind of time we need to invest in our connection to Him?

PRAY

Ask God to help you see when and where technology and social media are pulling you away from Him. Pray for the discipline to put down the technology and spend time more with Him.

ACT

Take a 7-day social media fast. Starting now, put away the Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for the next seven days. Intentionally use the time you would be doing those things to truly connect with others in your life and with the God who loves you.
