Can you go a day without your smartphone? How do you react when you loose or misplace your smartphone?  Technology is very useful in so many ways, but when it becomes a crutch your very soul is at stake. "The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon (Mathew 6:22-24).
