Those little ones deserve our one-to-one totally focused heart connection. Our days with them are so few. Our husbands desire our true companionship in the evening. Those who call us on the phone want to know that we're focused on their words, not on a screen. And our flesh and blood friends long to have us fully present to them, not texting away while we're with each other.
Our hobbies have dwindled, our gardens lay untended, our kitchen skills have gone dormant. Maybe most sadly of all, our time with our precious Savior gets truncated. From where I sit as a pastoral counselor, I truly believe that technology is slowly becoming a plague that destroys instead of a gift that enhances life.
