The curse of the mobile; goes the title of the email I received from my friend.

Me being the world of communications, the need to be in the social media realm, staying connected; knows all too well the risk of being ‘addicted’ to that smartphone in my hand.

And here’s my response to that:

Let me attempt to generalise:
It’s increasingly complex to live in today’s world.
Distractions are hitting us every minute.
Slowing down seems like something we do when we are on a holiday (even then).

Devices and media owns us.

Intention to read the bible on Youversion ended up answering Whatsapp.
And there’s nothing we can do to stop the growth of media, technology, devices, productivity tools.

In this mad world, all the more we have to live an intentional life.

Intentionally go to Jesus.

Intentionally tear our phone from our palm, put it aside and focus on whoever and whatever that’s in front of us.

Intentionally put our phone on DO NOT DISTURB and ask for wisdom to know when to use this mighty feature.

Intentionally use media, gadgets, tech for GOOD.

Intentionally CONTRIBUTE, not merely CONSUME.

Intentionally be the CHANGE, not the COMPLAINER.

In this mad world, all the more we have to consciously center back on Him throughout the day.
In this mad world, all the more we need Jesus.

Coz in this mad world where things just doesn’t makes sense, He is the One that brings stability in our inner being.
