Cell phones…can’t live without them right?  I must admit that I find value in mine – it keeps me in touch…keeps me on schedule…on occasion provides entertainment with regard to music, Words with Friends and the occasional game of chess or backgammon.  Earlier today, I came across a Facebook post from a pastor friend of mine that I met through seminary and it got me thinking.  Now I know for some that a cell phone is simply a tool at best but when I look around, especially at others driving, I find that the cell phone is way more than a tool – it borders on addictive.  At any rate, I found the following challenging…maybe you will too – what do you think?


“One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matt 4:4)

“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it!” (Luke 11:26)

“Indeed, the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”  (Hebrews 4:12)
