Has our relationship with technology helped or hindered personal intimacy in our lives? Dr. Sherry Turkle has studied how living in a highly technical age, where we’re all plugged into something, changes the way we see ourselves as people; and the way we do relationships. Her research suggests that technology is taking up so much space in our lives that fewer things are getting our undivided attention. That means our kids, our spouses, and our relationship with God. Could it be that the cyberspace world we live in, is really robbing us of intimacy in relationships?
Could it be that these things have become idols in our lives?
God says whatever’s taken the central place in our heart is an idol. How about you? Has the techno world become a replacement in your life for connecting with the hearts of those closest to you? If so, consider this: God created us for relationship. He’s a jealous God. He desires our hearts--- and so do the people we love.
