“Without Ceasing”

The amount of hours that the average person consumes media and communication through TV, Computer/Internet, Mp3’s, radio, and cell phones are astronomical.  Many teens express that their social lives would end if they no longer had their phones.  Most of us feel that we NEED these things and can’t go with out them.  If we were to leave the house and drive for 20 minutes and then realize that we forgot our phone at home, most of us would turn back around to get it.  Media and technology are a 24/7 constant part of many of our lives. The unconscious motto many live by is “media and technology without ceasing”.

If we were to leave the house without communion with God, would we turn around to correct the situation.  Is God a life line that we can not go without.  Do you feel like you NEED  constant communication with God?  The apostle Paul calls us to “pray without ceasing”.  It is the constant awareness and communion with God everywhere we go.  What connection is most important for you, staying connected with technology and media or staying connected with God who is the only source of life-giving sustenance?

How are you balancing your life in the midst of Facebook, texting, farmville, wikipedia, google, skype, TV, Ipod, netflix, and your free mobile to mobile calling plan? Freestyle with me…
