Can technology be a tool to increase your devotion to God? I thought about that as I began planning to start up our Bible study group again this Fall. It’s always a challenge to do “homework” when participating in a Bible study -- or at least I know that it is for me. For some reason it seems like I don’t find the time -- take the time, really -- to read the lessons before going to the meetings. Even when it’s only once a month and there’s no excuse, it still happens.
So, anyway, I’m the leader of this group; I have to prepare. As I was doing so, I started wondering how I could help the members (and myself) read some of the material between meetings. I thought of those systems where you can sign up for a Bible verse a day. I wondered if I could send out emails on a regular schedule to my group with short passages from the lessons. Maybe that would make it easier to get the reading done -- if it showed up in their inboxes and only required a couple minutes of time.
I think I’ll try it. Wonder if it’ll work.
What about you? Have you experienced an example of technology increasing your devotion? Have you come up with a system using technology to increase your own or others’ devotion?
