Right Wi Fi Mind

Like multitudes among us, I've a smartphone. It's my convenient mobile pocket office and work center.

Daily, I do significant amounts of work through my smartphone with Wi Fi, such as writing, reading, and communicating to patients.

So it's a blessing. The Wi Fi. The smartphone.

But we can realize another side of it. It can also be used as a distraction, vice, or addictive drug.

Eduardo quit his grade 10 to remain at home. Each day, he spends a lot of hours watching porn and playing games from his smartphone with Wi Fi. He gave up school for that.

His parents felt helpless. Their son would turn violent if separated from his "drug of choice." You can imagine Eduardo's groans and wails when it's taken away.

Take note, the Wi Fi and smartphone are not to be blamed. They're mere tools. It depends on what we do with it.

Discover your self by asking these questions:

•  Do you check social media networks, play games, watch porn or movies, etc compulsively for hours throughout the day?

•  What does that indicate about your self and the things you thirst or hunger for?

•  Do the things you view or read online make you a healthy, balanced self?

•  Or, are the things you do with your smartphone and Wi Fi leading you to feed on trash - gossip, abusive negative talks, sexual disorders, material greed etc?

The writer of Proverbs says, "A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash" (Proverbs 15:14).

Have the right Wi Fi mind that builds your self and life.
