Humans are undergoing a lot of changes as technology grows. Some technologies are very useful to humans. But there is always a technology going on with us that destroys man without man knowing it. I mean to talk about the smartphone in our hands. There are people who use their smartphones to their advantage but in my experience, there are more people who are addicted to it. From the time a person wakes up in the morning to the time he goes to bed, it is enough to consider the way our smartphone is used. To understand whether it is addiction or not. The problem with this is that we do not realize that we have such an addiction. This is partly due to the social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and so on. We are constantly watching the relationships, friends, and their positive aspects through this social media. When we see that, we change without realizing it but we do not see their true nature. Sometimes we start comparing ourselves to the lives of others. There are a lot of people who believe that what they see on social media is 100 percent honest. We need to understand that some of these are marketing strategies.
How many of us switch off our phones and sit down to talk to our family when we get home from work? How many of us can switch off the phone and spend time with family during the holidays? Can we turn off our smartphones while eating? No one can do that now. Prepare ourselves to show others what our lifestyle is and let it be known on social media that is the main mission of our life right now.
Why am I trying to say all this? How many families are falling apart right next to us? We can see in our community some people leave their families when they get a good job. A good percentage of people sit in bars after work. Don’t even want to call the parents. People who are married are trying to connect or have illegal relationships with other people. becomes addicted to alcohol and drugs. Sometimes you may need to take medication for depression and sleep.
But let’s think differently today. How beautiful is a scene where we talk to our family and laugh when we come home from work. Traveling with the family on vacation, preparing meals together, and praying can all add to the unity of the family. The happiness and peace we get from our family are not found anywhere else. You will not be satisfied with the likes or comments you get on social media for that happiness. When you have free time then you can build your own skills without spending it on social media. Purify our home and surroundings and our minds. Talk to God and try to sleep well. God has given us a family so that we can always be happy.
How good and pleasant it is
when God’s people live together in unity. Psalm 133:1
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
Like a city whose walls are broken through
is a person who lacks self-control. Proverbs 25:28
