Look At Me!

Our phones have become an extension of our arms. We are no longer engaging in conversation but we have become fully engaged in the lives of others that are not even in the room. God created us to be relational. We need one another. We weren’t created to be an island unto ourselves; totally engaged in social media, games and apps that take us away from being “fully present” with those with whom we say we love and appreciate. We are becoming recluses in public places.

Could it be that we are moving further and further away from the need for being around people and more engaged and dependent upon our devices; to the point where we live vicariously through the lives of those on the other side of the screen; and when we finally come together its for the sole purpose of procreation? Now before our children reach the age of two, we have placed devices in their hands to keep them busy. Blocks and rattles no longer interest them and the cycle continues.

And when they get a little older, this next generation will never know the beauty of being in the moment; actually chatting, laughing and crying with someone that’s sitting right in front of them. They will never be able to read facial expressions because so much of what they’ve seen, would have come through the eyes of a filter; created moments that don’t fully express a true emotion based upon what’s actually going on at the time. We have a responsibility to be present while looking into the eyes of those with whom we love and appreciate. We may be setting up a generation that will never understand the term “look at me”.
