In today's world does that mean giving up computers, smartphones, and anything else that distracts you from god? is it becoming a Priest/Nun or going into the church so as to dedicate your life in that way?
In my opinion, it is to rid yourself from all distractions so our target and goal is very clear. Jesus Christ.
I have given my Android to my brother since he wanted to buy a phone anyway...its been helpful but i still use my dads laptop (what im using right now) and i need that to update my moms blog (she writes about the miracles in her life, ill add a link below)
Im really torn between Going all out Amish style I.E no electronics or anything that can serve as a distraction or something toned down like just using it for the bare necessities.
In my Heart i know i want to give up this laptop as i spend a lot of time on it and end up forgetting god.
I really want to follow god with all my heart and with as much vigor as i can but im not able to balance these things adequately in my life...anyway i know this is something i have to figure out on my own..But im interested in hearing how you guys cope with distractions in the world...do you alienate them or use them sparingly.
