Mobile phones are sucking the life right out of us. Present company included. (Yeah, I’m an addict.)
From distracted drivers to texting during family meals and business meetings, we’re zoned out and checked out way too often.
Amber Binkertation is putting her mobile phone in the trunk whenever she drives this week!
Heather Sunseri was rightfully annoyed when iPhone cameras recently dominated a wedding ceremony.
I was recently stunned by texting during a funeral.
We don’t even try to hide it. And we need help. We need an intervention. Which is why – for this week – I’m going to say “no” to my cell phone and yes to prayer.
No, I’m not getting rid of my mobile phone. I legitimately need it for my job and family. But I don’t need to be talking while I’m driving. I don’t need to be walking around airports with my earpiece. And I don’t need to be texting during breakfast. (Note to self: I am really annoying when I walk around with my earpiece.)
Here’s where prayer fits in. I’m going to take all that unnecessary “phone time” this week and pray instead. Which means I’ll have a few extra hours of prayer in my schedule.
Care to join me?
