Long, long ago my mother would send me down the street to the local Arroyo Grande theater to watch the Saturday afternoon matinee. This tactic provided me with entertainment and her with a few hours of peace and quiet. It cost all of 25 cents.
Compare that with the cost of a movie ticket today and I become very thankful for the blessings of Netflix, Hulu, and my comfy couch and TV. Technology has made our lives so much easier, if not cheaper. Yet life is swiftly changing as this 5 minute peek into our near future by Corning shows.
Sometimes things happen that seem to indicate the end of something important in our lives.
According to Daniel 12:4, knowledge will increase as we near the end times. New technology sure seems to be indicating that we are in those days. Whether we are or not, we have a lot to look forward to in many ways—new gadgets and the return of the King.
How has your life changed for the better because of new technology?
How do you decide what technology is needful for your life and what is not?
