mark driscoll on electronic gadgets

I recently read this helpful post by Mark Driscoll, preaching pastor at Mars Hill Church, regarding the way that we are often chained to our electronic gadgets in an unhealthy way. I know this is an issue for many people, including myself. It's often easy to neglect time with family or time with God because of the urgency that comes with phone calls, emails or text messages. I hope this provokes some thought. Enjoy.

There

    Very persuasive. He didn't even mention what to me is even worse--using these "gadgets" while driving. I pray for the safety of my loved ones when they are riding around in cars, and that they will not be hurt by someone who is reading email, texting, or talking on a cell phone while driving. I have had to fight the urge to do so while I am driving--so I know the sinful pull these gadgets have on people. Thanks Mark, and Luke--thanks for sharing.
