Today I was thinking about smart phones and how beneficial they are. I had to call my pharmacy and get a medication transferred over, but there was some difficulties about which number to fax it to. Luckily, I was able to get look it up on the internet while walking to class and get it all figured out. I think that's such a miracle. I am so grateful that it didn't add days worth of time to get things figured out because of having to call back and forth and wait for people to look things up and get connected. There is so much potential for good with smart phones. Sometimes I hate my phone because I get distracted by games or wasting time on Instagram or Facebook, but the truth is, smart phones are a miracle! I think the good it is in my life is much greater than the bad it brings.
I love this quote by Randall L. Ridd:
“The divine purpose of technology is to hasten the work of salvation. … The Lord expects you to use these great tools to take His work to the next level, to share the gospel in ways that are beyond my generation’s wildest imagination.
“Where generations past influenced their neighbors and their town, you have the power through the Internet and social media to reach beyond borders and influence the whole world.”
