Digital Detox

A group of people, all looking at their smartphones

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.—1 Timothy 6:17 (NIV)

It is easy to be distracted by technology—a second to check social media or email can turn into an hour of missed time with your family or enjoying the beauty that God has placed before you. Make a commitment to unplug during your vacation or family time—and keep it! You won’t regret being present in the precious moments that you share with your loved ones.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I want to fully experience the wonder of the world and the blessing of my family. Guide me to plug into my life and my loved ones and all that is truly important.
