As you’re reading this, you might be listening to music, sipping a coffee, or sending an email. Naturally, you’ll have as many tabs open in your head as you do on your screen, but have a think about the last 5 minutes of your day. Or the first? If you’re anything like me, my phone is one of the first things I think of and is nearly always in the vicinity, however, those few minutes could easily be handed over to prayer.
‘Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1
We are justified through faith! We don’t need the affirmation of a like or re-tweet, because we have the greatest confidence in God.
Switch it off and spend time with Him, instead of trawling through newsfeeds and notifications.
Although technology can be great for keeping in touch with friends, and of course, reading More Precious (!), 5 minutes sans-screens will bring you some peace and reconnect you to God.
