Put ‘Em Down

Politician A makes a statement. Politician B responds. CNN or Fox News picks up the story and agitates. Come on, lets you and him fight! A group of kids decide to pick on another kid, and it results in a tragic suicide attempt or death.

Cell phones, I-Pads, computers, communication devices of all types are everywhere. They are in cars, stores, athletic games, churches; almost everyone has a device of some type.

Our dependence on communication devices has led us to a point where one on one, face to face communication is almost nonexistent. If we are watching, listening or pecking on a device, then we are not paying attention to the people around us.

The old cowboy says, “Never miss a good chance to shut up”. Shut ‘em down, turn ‘em off, unplug the devices and pay attention to what’s going on.

In the Bible, James tells us, “let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to wrath”, James 1:19.

The writer of Hebrews tells us, “we have much to say and hard to explain since you have become dull in hearing”, Hebrews 5:11.

These truths and more are being taught in Sunday school. We invite you to come to Sunday school. We have a place just for you, every Sunday at 9:45 a.m. See you in class.

In love and truth,
