The Lord said to Moses, “Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. Be ready in the morning, and then come up on Mount Sinai. Present yourself to me there on top of the mountain. No one is to come with you or be seen anywhere on the mountain; not even the flocks and herds may graze in front of the mountain.”

So Moses chiseled out two stone tablets like the first ones and went up Mount Sinai early in the morning, as the Lord had commanded him; and he carried the two stone tablets in his hands.

Exodus 34:1-4

Last Sunday we launched our new Village App. An online platform where we can read the Bible, a daily Blog, catch up on Sermons and much more. But the Village App raises a question. Where does technology fit in the life of the Church? Where should it?

This is probably not something you think about a lot. But obviously, technology is a big deal today. It’s never been more integrated into our lives, for better and worse.

It’s worth seeing that technology has always been present. It took technology to build the ark, the tabernacle and the temple. In Exodus 34, Moses uses chisels to carve out the tablets with the very words of God. Similarly, the testimony about Jesus spread through pen and paper and now printing presses.

Now I know it feels like there is a vast difference between a smartphone and a chisel. But it is worth seeing that technology is not the issue. It’s what we do with it. Just as the smartphone can have an App like Tinder or Snapchat, it can also host our Bible App.

So the question is, what will you do with technology? Will you use it for sin or for godliness?

For Today:
  • How do you think/feel about technology?
  • How are you finding the Village App?
  • How could you use technology for further godliness?
Pray: Praise the Father that He created us to be creative and innovative. Give thanks for Jesus who shows us the purpose and path of life. Ask God for His Holy Spirit to help you and others use technology wisely.
