Are we teaching our kids to worship cell phones?

Posted on 12/30/2016 by Greg Yoder

I have to admit that I’m VERY attached to my cell phone. The other day I accidentally left it at home while I went out and ran some errands, and I couldn’t believe how many times I reached for it, only to realize that it wasn’t there. I was only gone for 20 minutes, but, by the time I was done at one store, I decided to run home to get it. I might be addicted to it. My wife clearly pointed out that I needed to be a better example to my teen daughter who is going to be driving soon. Mom and Dad, put your cell phone on silent and put it in your glove compartment. Make your kids do it, too. That’ll promote healthy conversations, not mobile gamers.

Suggested Reading: Exodus 20:12
