Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
 
One of the things that people remember most is the memory of their parents. However good or bad it may be, they remember that time when they were young and what went on in the home. The home, and the family in it, is something that has suffered the greatest blows of Satan. He has infiltrated the minds and hearts of the family throughout the world. Culture is against family, and now even many politicians are against them.
 
In an article in the Atlantic magazine, the author gives statistics about the effects of electronics on teenagers. She states, “The more time teens spend looking at screens, the more likely they are to report symptoms of depression….Teens who spend three hours a day or more on electronic devices are 35%  more likely to have a risk factor for suicide, such as making a suicide plan…” The article later said, “The correlations between depression and smartphone use are strong enough to suggest that more parents should be telling their kids to put down their phone.” This is a hard task for some parents to do, when they are on their phones more than their children.
 
Perhaps we cannot be separated from our electronics, but one thing we will never be separated from is that sacred responsibility to display a life devoted and consecrated to the Living God. The younger generation needs to see that there is more to this world than Instagram and Facebook, that there is a life that can be lived in the Presence of God. Sometimes you need to put down the phone and do something with your hands. As the culture gets further and further away from God, this example becomes more and more important. What are you showing the younger generation, parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents?
