Smartphone Apps: Fighting Fire with Fire

John Piper:

Why should we think of the Facebook app threatening the Bible app? Why not the Bible app threatening the Facebook app, and the email app, and the RSS feeder, and the news?

Resolve that today you will press the Bible app three times during the day. No five times. Ten times! Maybe you will lose control and become addicted to Bible! Again and again get a two-minute dose of life-giving Food. Man shall not live by Facebook alone.

I’m serious. Never has the God’s voice been so easily accessible. The ESV app is free. The OliveTree BibleReader app is free. And so are lots of others. Let the Bible threaten your focus. Or better: Let the Bible bring you back to reality over and over during the day.

You can read the whole thing here. (HT: JT)

You might also consider Fighter Verses app. No only will you be addicted to the Bible, but it will be indelibly emblazoned on your heart and mind. Psalm 119:11 (ESV) – I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
