The revised 23rd Psalm, 2019
The cellphone is my shepherd, my spiritual growth shall want.
It maketh me to sit down to do nothing for His name’s sake, because it requireth all my spare time.
It keepeth me from doing my duty as a christian, because it presenteth so many good videos that I must see.
It restoreth my knowledge of the things of the world, and keepeth me from the study of God’s word.
It leadeth me in the paths of wasting my time, and in doing nothing for the Kingdom of God.
Yea, though I lose all my real friendships, I shall keep on spending time on my cellphone, as long as it is charged, for it is my closest companion.
Its sounds and its picture, they comfort me.
It presenteth entertainment before me, and keepeth me from doing important things with my family.
It fills my head with ideas which differ from those set forth in the Word of God.
Surely, no good thing will come of my life, because my cellphone offereth me no good time to do the will of God; thus I will dwell in spiritual poverty all the days of my life.
Food for Thought: Imagine how better our time would be spent if we cut out just 2 hours a day of electronics, and substituted that time for reading the Word, starting a project long overdue, exercising, volunteering, or praying.
Fun facts: The average American spends 4 hours a day on their cellphone alone. This does not include time watching television or being on the computer. Children now spend an average of 9 hours a day in front of a media screen between phones, tv, computers, and video games.
Even our dog loved watching our electronics!
