I have some buzz to share. It found its way to me today, unexpectedly, I might add! There are more than a few writing about it so I’m not going to belabor it by writing my own lengthy post; but I am asking you to familiarize yourself with the message, the pros and the cons. You could spend substantial time reading post after post; herein I am offering you a few. Particularly though I’m asking you to consider praying.
This is the caption that caught my eye: THE IPAD IS A FAR BIGGER THREAT TO OUR CHILDREN THAN ANYONE REALIZES
And a more moderate one: Middle-class angst over technology in the early years
So what is the buzz? Screens! And the hours our children and grandchildren spend zoned in on them.
Isn’t it ironic that I am using one of subject screen medias to get this message to you? Obviously, getting rid of all screens is not the solution but after reading the above I think you will agree there is a threat to address.
Truthfully, I am relieved that I do not have children young enough that GOD expects me to steward them in this regard. However, I do have grandchildren. Yet, even if I did not, should not the love of GOD move me to look after, at least in prayer, my neighbors’ young ones?
Face to face fun
Face to book reading
Hand to paper creating and
Parental face to child face loving attention
Screens do not deliver on these but they do deter.
Abba, thank You for alerting me. I don’t know what You want me to do, I don’t even know what I am capable of doing in this but this I know I must pray. I must have Your voice here. I want Your help even within my own family. I see it. I see what is happening and I am worried. I am asking You to intervene and help us. I pray parents will cooperate with You so You do not have to get drastic with all of us. Holy Spirit, would You be of a mind to raise up enough Prayer Warriors to move the hearts and wills of parents and grandparents to rescue our children and save this and the next generation for JESUS sake? I pray You will let me be one of those. I pray to see You do this divine intervention. Amen and Amen.
