Beloved, we are in the world of technology today. No doubt technology has advantages and disadvantages both in the society and homes, not excluding Christian homes. We have all manners of technological devices that surround us, ranging from laptops, tablets, phones etc.
Each new technological device brings with it the good and bad influence, depending on how well you put them to use. We should endeavour to putGod first in all things. After all, God is the giver of knowledge. Why then should we place these technological devices above our Creation and the God of the universe.
All devices, social media and so on are to help make life easy and make communication and transactions faster. However, they do replace some crucial natural interactions between persons at different levels in the society. The Christian home, marriage and family fabric have been adversely affected.
Communication, which is a central factor in marriages is fast becoming a force. Couples relate more with sms, Whatsapp messages and other means than creating quality time to relate physically with one another. It has become so serious among couples as well as parents and children.
Many Christian couples are physically together but emotionally separated. They watch different programmes. Each has his or her own area of interest. As a result, there is little or no room for harmony. Everyone is on his or her tablet or laptop or TV set.
Children are busy pressing phones, surfing the Internet; in the process many fall into different satanic traps unknown to them. Many Christian children have fallen into untold errors: pornography, joining bad gangs, robbery, terrorism, cultism and occult practice and violence through the Internet and social media. Refuse the TV from becoming a devil’s box in your home!
These and more are the consequences of the misuse of technological devices in our homes, instead of using them to educate ourselves and children and propagating the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Husband and wife, how strong is the bond of love between you, in spite of technology? Is it not better to develop that unity and oneness, and develop mutual interest in each other’s area of interest? By doing this, the devil will not succeed in separating you under the disguise of technology.
When you make use of all these devices and appliances for the betterment of your family and your home, your marriage would not fall apart, in Jesus’ name.
1. Lord, separate my spirit man from anything that wants to destroy me, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. What God has made to bless me shall not be the source of destruction in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Holy Spirit, teach me to use my time only for the advancement and the glory of the Kingdom of God, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4. I shall not invest my life on unprofitable ventures, in the name of Jesus Christ.
5. Holy Spirit, invest in my heart with the things of heaven, in the name of Jesus.
6. Holy Spirit, help me to order my priority in life in line with heaven’s expectations, in the name of Jesus Christ.
7. The devil will not write the last chapter of my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
