I’m always leery of viral videos and can usually determine if they are worth a watch depending on who posted it (you know it’s true).
Needless to say, we (Ryan and I) felt like this video is somewhat timely with summer on the way. It really struck a chord in us about this never ending battle with technology and its affect on our marriage.
Lately I’ve felt like I’ve been losing the fight. The urgency to check a post or an image can sometimes take priority over other important things: Ryan and I’s conversations; interaction and engagement with our baby – I’m sure we’ve all been there.
We have a few different posts about how Ryan and I try to deal with the flood of social media such as Quality Time: 3 Habits for Unplugged Dating, and Margin in your Marriage.
Honestly, Jesus is still the prime example of a free, flourishing, deep and full life – and guess how he ministers to us? Not through social media, but through a personal relationship.
My mind is still blown by this fact: the Savior of the world wants to connect with me, every day, all the time. He wants to be in my world – not via social media, through an email or text, but one on one.
This video presents some great points to think about. Ok, go watch it and then – get off your phone!
