- We’ve gone from communication taking weeks to being practically instantaneous in the space of 150 years.
- With any new technology, something old is set aside or lost to make space for the new thing. This can leave people feeling unsettled in the “new” world in which they live.
- It’s important to pay attention to how technology influences the way we think and behave, as well as where we are looking for nourishment.
What’s a technology you trust? What’s a technology you don’t trust? What do think inspires trust and distrust in the technology we use?
Do you agree with the statement that “Technology is anything that was invented after you were born, every- thing else is just stuff”? Is there a technology that you take for granted?
How do you spend your time? How do you wish that you spent you time? Are those two the same?
Read the entirety of Psalm 1. Spend some time meditating on the wisdom of this section of scripture. When it comes to social media, what do you think it looks like to avoid sitting “in the seat of scoffers”? In your life, what would it look like to be “planted by streams of water”? In our world, drenched with technology and social media, it might be wise to pay attention to where we sit and where we’re planted.
