2 Chron. 15:2 He went out to meet Asa and said to him, "Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: The Lord is with you, while you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you abandon him, he will abandon you.
The more technology we seem to get in our hands, the more connected we become. Way back when - the postal service was a major innovation.
Then - came telephones, and cars. Faxes. Mobile phones. E-mail. These days my daughter communicates with her friends through myspace.com and MSN Messenger and SMS…
