Disconnect to Reconnect with God


Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33


Now, I know that I’m not the only one who has grabbed their cellphone first thing in the morning or stared at the screen during dinner with a friend or family member, so I have to ask:

When did we get so consumed with technology that we’ve allowed it to capture our complete attention more than an actual human being? I want to dig even deeper and ask is this dependency on electronics and technology also affecting our relationship with the Lord?

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.


Matthew 6:33 asks us to seek the Lord FIRST.

That means putting Him first in our lives at all times, even the first few moments of our day. He is the One who graciously woke us up, gave us the breath in our lungs, and provided us another opportunity to live another day. He deserves our devotion the moment our eyes pop open, even if it is a mere “thank you, God” before our feet even hit the floor.

As we live in the great information age, we are bombarded with opportunities to fill our time and our minds with so many things that can so easily replace our time of fellowship with the Lord. Information available to us, literally at our fingertips, at all times, is a wonderful gift, but that mobile device that we carry around in our bags, our purses and pockets can also be a mobile distraction that follows us everywhere we go.

Although our cellphones, tablets, iPods, laptops, etc., are not evil, I do believe we need to be cautious as to how much time we are devoting to them. We need to be aware of where we are directing our focus. We need to be attentive of what is capturing our attention.

Perhaps you may not have an issue with technology distracting you from the Lord- good for you! Stay strong and be an accountability partner for those around you who have easily pulled away from the things of God because of the ever-increasing information age.
