I went for a beautiful dance production and before I knew what was happening my 2 year old had whipped out my phone switched on the camera and was ready to start taking pictures...I looked at her and smiled. The advent of mobile phones in our lives has brought a massive change to our way of thinking. I remember when gsm was introduced...the aim was to bring people closer and together I believe.
It was heavenly being able to call your friends and families from distant places, and as technology developed so did our thinking. We were only too happy to be in touch with our loved ones then it moved to being able to send them pictures without having to scan the images. When God gives a gift its meant to give us Joy! "for his gifts brings Joy and adds no sorrow". But the devil will never let it be! So he rears his ugly head and infuses his own touch to this amazing gifts and that's why people will rather use their phones these days to capture sordid images. Thereby propagating the works of the evil doers knowingly or unknowingly.
It's so easy for us now to see a drowning person and instead of calling for help we whip out our phones and start recording the images just so to share it with the world....how sick can that be. We can use a lot of our time to evangelise and tell people more about the good things of life than share images of burnt Kano victims or sick adults molesting children. Even if you do record a crime please forward it to the necessary authorities and let it end there. If 70% of us refuse to forward silly videos the world will be much for it. We can leave that to the news channels..,it's not cool at all. I'm quite happy to open links to clips of bovi or I go die o doing their thing. Or a very nice inspirational word that will put me in high spirits all day but please think before you forward sick links.
I know a lot of this links generate prayer points but you may as well just write it or pray it. Our God is a God of intense imagination...I mean he created the world and all that is in it...look at the intricate delicate patterns on some animals or some of those beautiful flowers. Remember he created us in his own image so that means our level of imagination should at least be worth something. So please guys Abeg let's spend our time forwarding responsible and encouraging images and start to nip this viral and corrupt broadcasts in the bud..
Can a child play with your phone without seeing something that can traumatise them? Let's think .....stay blessed.
