Spiritually Weak? There's an App for That!
Living in this fast paced digital age, it seems that everything is getting more efficient, smaller and faster. Ironically, so is time. I thought efficiency and speed was about saving time and here we seem to have less and less of it. I remember not having cell phones, affordable computers or Bluetooth and somehow I seem to recall having much more time than I do now.
Well, that’s another a discussion for another day. Right now, well, we need to wise choices on the time that we do have. Near about everybody has some sort of device that uses apps or some sort. I feel I have experienced the whole gambit from the beta apps to the full-fledged paid ones. With these, I have experienced the unstable, fun, useless, cool looking, but not much substance to the absolute amazing. Speaking of which, I think I just found where my time went.
With everything at our fingertips (which has never been more true than now), it’s easy to get distracted and lose the efficiency our devices brag they bring to our lives. So, in an attempt to encourage our ever challenging Christian walk through discipleship, here is a list of apps to help you on your journey and stay focused on the One who is focused on us. Just type titles into your app service or click the links below. Enjoy!
