Technology Has Changed Our Lives
Technology. We love it, but how technology has changed our lives is not all good.
Smarter devices, smaller devices, more texting, less talking, “no”G to 4G. Is that a bluetooth in your ear? What does it all mean? Our lives are full of changing technology.
Just how technology has changed our lives
It leads me to believe that it is somewhat responsible for the lack of good judgement, especially in younger people today.
You read stories of parents who are shocked at huge cell phone (texting) bills their children run up unknowingly. Do they not monitor their kids?
Texting is just one way how technology has changed our lives. People no long talk to each other which leads to a life of no substance. They become void of emotions.
Don’t get me wrong and think that this applies to everyone as you know it doesn’t.
It is just so sad that so many, especially younger people are captivated by this new drug, technology.
How technology has changed our lives in an adverse way makes me quite sad. I don’t think it was ever meant to have this effect.
Our lives in many ways are better, or at least easier. But is easier always better?
We were created to embrace each other. To reach out to others and bring them into the family of God.
I don’t care how fast you can text, or how smart your phone is, until you talk face-to-face with someone and put your arms around them and give them a warm hug, you are not truly communicating.
How technology has changed our lives is quite good in many ways. New medical devices and techniques that are tools to save lives is one example.
Breakthrough discoveries from the space program are countless, which is good.
But one thing that is a common thread in all the changing technology is the fact that it was done by humans. Real people.
My challenge to you, regardless how technology has changed our lives, is to try talking to someone. No more texting, no more emails, just use your voice and let a friend hear you tell them how special they are.
There is nothing more calming and reassuring than the human voice when the one on the receiving end is feeling a time of need.
Right now stop reading this and go talk with a friend, your family in the next room. Let them hear your voice and feel your love.
What you get in return will be much greater than a text in reply.
Instead of how technology has changed our lives, maybe the question should be, “how can I change someone else’s life.”
Once you do, come back here and tell us how good it felt.
