"Hold That Thought, God. I Need To Check My E-mail."

Josh Harris uses the wisdom of Proverbs 24:33-34 to point out the need for self-control in a wired world.   He encourages the asking of some basic questions, particularly as they relate to modern developments like Facebook, Twitter, and blogging.

  • What are the things I’m tempted to do instead of what I should be doing?
  • Where do I waste time?
  • What do I fill my time with that crowds out that more important activity with eternal value?
  • Where do I need greater self-control?

Doing what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, requires self-control.
