Crossroads…Where Technology Comes to Die

Someone who knows me saw my broken computer screen and said to me, “Crossroads is where technology comes to die.” That’s the second computer screen I have cracked in 3 years. Late last week, I dropped my cell phone and it landed on the phone’s already broken screen. The phone worked fine, but the touch screen showed no signs of life. I went to Walmart and spoke with a really smart tech guy who didn’t know my history of breaking screens, so I knew he wouldn’t look at me like, “You broke another screen?!?” He suggested I purchase a “go phone” for $26 and then put the sim card from my broken phone in it. It works! For $26 dollars I’m ready to go again!

So what’s the point of this, besides that I break screens?

In  Ecclesiastes 7:29,  Solomon makes a relevant observation: “Behold, I have found only this, that God made men upright, but they have sought out many devices”.

Our “many devices,” gadgets, and technology, for all the convenience they supposedly provide, often fritter away our time and energy. I spent a lot of time and energy trying to resolve the problem with my cell phone. It kept ringing and dinging, and I couldn’t see who was calling or text messaging. The thing had a life of its own, always reminding me that I broke the screen. I hollered at it once, “I know I broke you…get off my case!”

I somehow think that before Jesus returns, there’s going to be a lot of broken screens, maybe just to disconnect us from our devices so we have more time to connect with Him.

What do you think?

As our world experiences increased trauma and shaking, it will be evident: there is no substitute for the presence of God. Yet instead of having hearts full of God, or at least hearts that are seeking God, our hearts are weighed down, bloated with worldliness and addicted to pleasure. We are saddened if we have nothing to entertain us.

To provide an environment where each individual can reach their fullest potential in Christ through discipleship, experience, and service.
