Today, the world works through two main discoveries, electricity and technology. What is technology? Technology is the making of tools and objects that helps man do his work. Machines, appliances, gadgets, means of transportation, weapons, these are all products of technology. Technology is a blessing to us but, it can also be a curse.

Technology runs our daily life and everyday work. When we cook, we use stoves and kitchen appliances; when we go to work, we use computers and machines that helps us in various ways. Technology is really helpful to us but, it can also harm us in a quiet way. 

Cellphones, laptops, tablets, computers, televisions, gadgets, these are some of the products of technology that runs the daily lives of the generation today. Yes, these are blessings but, it can eat your time in other priorities which you could have done. What makes gadgets eat our precious time? let  us say that internet helps as do our work but there are certain programs that is pulling us helplessly ,without us knowing it, to indulge and waste our time in unnecessary things.

Internet is a product of technology that has captured many of the generation today to use their time on. It is like a magnet tempting us to surf on it helplessly without even knowing what your goal is but continuing on doing it. I'll say that Facebook, Twitter, You-tube, and other sites and programs in the internet impacts most teenagers' lives today. 
What are we to do? How can we continue using this blessing without letting us be pulled helplessly? We need help from someone who is not attached to these things. Someone who is perfect and never gets swayed to worldly things. That someone is God. He is the only perfect being who lives and can help us avoid the tempting magnet that pulls us. The time we use doing unnecessary stuff with the internet can be spent on spending time with our Savior. In this way our eyes will turn away from worldly and earthly things, that doesn't last, and fix our eyes on Jesus. 
Matthew 6:19
"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus and set our goals on achieving things that will last.
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."




Let us fix our eyes on Jesus and set our goal on treasures that will last. I want to close with this song titled 'Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus".
