I was an early adopter of smartphones and was very excited about them. But now I think they’re ruining our lives in so many ways. In fact, I believe they’re having a very detrimental effect on the lives of young people who live in a virtual world.
In this virtual world, they’re not able to communicate with one another. They converse through texting more than they communicate through face-to-face conversations. Maybe that is one reason anxiety and depression are so high among young people today. We’ve never been more connected and disconnected at the same time.
Every generation needs to hear the gospel. As the psalmist David wrote, “One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts” (Psalm 145:4 NKJV). Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
For every generation, the answer is Jesus.
