Thought For The Day 03/31/11


This post is less a “thought” and more of a “note” to you all, but I’m writing it nonetheless.
I am not the most techno savvy person on the face of the earth. In fact, I have been known to staunchly resist change (just ask my husband). But there is one item I possess with technology I have come to love…my iPhone!
Did you know there are tons of free Apps out there on the iPhone for Christians? I have a couple downloaded which I use all the time….when I walk the dog, during long car rides, even when I’m in my MD’s office waiting…and waiting…and waiting!!! Some are video, some audio and some just for reading, but since my cell phone seems to be attached to me at all times, it is wonderful to have this little, portable resource close at hand. Three Apps that I have and love include:
1: “Bible” from which offers many translations (NKJV, CEV, The Message, etc.) and lets you bookmark your favorite passage.
2: “Ligonier” which offers daily devotionals, Christian educational topics, and blogs.
3: “COTM” (Church On The Move) which has video services by a variety of clergy.
Technology has it’s good and bad sides but I find this to be one of the better sides to it. And since it’s not going to go away, I figure we need to learn to use it to better ourselves. And what better way than this? (Oh, and to carry about 300 pictures of my grandson!)
