Technology is a gift to us from God, but it can be used for sinful purposes. When we fail to make Scripture our guiding light, technology becomes an idol distracting us from God's intended purposes. Spend some time reflecting on technology's influence in your life. Ask God to reveal to you any areas in which you use it idolatrously and trust Him to lead you in faithful obedience moving forward.
