Too Much Of Anything:
When you and I take in too much of anything, we stand the chance of it making us sick. It doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but whatever it is, you and I should try to have a balance.
This is about today’s daily prompt, which asks How Do You Manage Screen time For Yourself?
Taking In Screen Time:
It’s almost like technology has been set up for failure. We are asked to go paperless and have all our bills online. We can do banking online. Here, I am blogging, and it also calls for me to be in front of a screen. If I’m not working on my blog, I may be reading blogs. If you’re reading a good book, most likely, you will be staring at a screen. Dealing with editing photos also calls for spending time looking at the screen.
There are a few things you and I can do without looking at the screen. You and I can do our housework while listening to the radio or enjoying music.
Sometimes, I think we have been set up for failure with all these gadgets. Though they are an asset, they are also quite addictive. The games can draw us in, and before you know it, you’ve lost much of your time.
What The Scriptures Say About Too Much Of Anything:
The Bible tells us that too much of anything is not good. It doesn’t matter what it is because a balance is needed.
So, I will strive to do better with my screen time.
Have you found honey? Eat only as much as you need, lest you be filled with it and vomit. Proverbs 25:16
What the above Scripture is saying, though honey may be good, take only what you need. Because if you take in too much of it, it will make you sick.
Likewise, we are being warned about the many ways in which too much screen time may harm us.
What I also love is that the Bible gives me information concerning all my life issues.
