Is There Wi-Fi?

The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness. (Proverbs 15:14) 
As I was preparing to go on a mission trip with some young people, the most frequently asked question was, “Is there Wi-Fi?” And I assured them there would be. So just imagine the wails and groans one night when the Wi-Fi was down! 
Many of us become anxious when we’re separated from our smartphones. And when we do have our iPhones or Androids in our hands, we can be fixated on our screens. 
Like many things, the internet and all that it allows us to access can become either a distraction or a blessing. It depends on what we do with it. In Proverbs we read, “A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash” (15:14 nlt). 
Applying the wisdom of God’s Word to life, we can ask ourselves: Do we check our social networks compulsively throughout the day? What does that say about the things we hunger for? And do the things we read or view online encourage sensible living (vv. 16–21), or are we feeding on trash—gossip, slander, materialism, or sexual impurity? 
As we yield to the work of the Holy Spirit, we can fill our minds with things that are “true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report” (Philippians 4:8). By God’s wisdom we can make good choices that honor Him. 
God, help me to use my time well and to fill my mind with what is pure. 
This devotion blessed me, may we take this thought with us as we go throughout our days, what we let into our minds shapes the state of our souls. Beware of the little foxes that spoil the vine. 
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
