“Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my doorposts.” Proverbs 8:34
Laptops, Tablets, Smartphones…Email, Texting, Tweets…Facebook, Twitter, Blogs…
So many avenues, so many opportunities, so many thoughts to share…
I personally have been trying to grow in my ability to use different platforms for communicating. Right now, I am using Facebook by posting my blogs, I send out a daily scripture using a text app (text @evcds to 81010), along with giving a thought for the day on Twitter.
Technology is an incredible thing! Technology is a fun thing! Technology is a powerful thing! Technology can be used for good, it can be used for evil, it can be used for me, or it can be used for God.
The scripture above says that those who daily watch, wait, and listen to wisdom will be blessed. Since wisdom comes from God; since everyone needs more of His wisdom; since so many people have access to technology (like you and me); and, since technology is a great way to communicate; it seems that we should be using technology to help people watch, wait, and listen to wisdom. Not my wisdom, not your wisdom, but God’s wisdom.
Evil is decreased and knowledge of God is increased as people listen to wisdom.
The more people listen to wisdom, the more people will follow Jesus! The apostle Paul said that “all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” are in Jesus! (Colossians 2:3)
My encouragement for us this week: Let’s help people follow Jesus by using technology wisely!
Have a Great Week!
