The Next Story, Tim Challies
It made me think. Why do I need to check my email so often? Why do I always have my mobile in my pocket? What does my search history reveal about me? Why am I so tempted to turn on my computer as soon as I get up?
So as far as repentance goes - I am no longer turning my macbook on first thing. My email won't be checked so often - once a day will do fine. I will master my new iPad and not be mastered by it.
Footnote - I saw a man on the beach yesterday who needs to read this book. He had obviously taken his ten year old boy to the beach for a time of fun together. As he kicked the ball back and threw a stick for his dog all the time he had his phone in his hand. I thought catch yourself on mate - you are not the prime minister or the president of the US. And neither am I - so don't expect instant messages back - I may be with someone more important than the both of us.
