Voice of the Spirit

In light of all the talk that we had on technology and using it in my Honors 202 class yesterday, I thought it might be nice to ask the question: "Can you be sucked into technology and the digital world too much?"

Consider those who spend more time chatting online than talking to their own family. Consider those who text more than calling someone on their phone. Consider those who spend more time in the "World of Warcraft" world, or another digital world, more than they do in their own life.

With all this technology, it does give us a wonderful opportunity to learn and to grow, but at the same time, it can be detrimental to the relationships we have if we get sucked into it too much. It can also rob us of true knowledge, when we delve too much into the unimportant things. To help make my point, watch this new Mormon Messages video with President Faust's wise words on the voices we listen to today:

Voice of the Spirit

Just a warning to us all not to get too wrapped up in the digital world that we miss the most important messages around us.
