Does Our Technology Tell Us Who We Are?

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

I wonder: Does our technology tell us who we are? It seems that whenever I go out, almost everyone I see is looking at some type of hand-held technology, even when they are supposed to be working. I heard a special on NPR or read somewhere that people are so in-tune to their texts, social media, emails, etc. that when they aren't getting pinged with something in their inbox, they are depressed and feel like they are missing out on things.

 I used to feel like I was missing out on things when I thought that my dress size told me who I am. I felt that all the thin people in the world were worthwhile and I would be if I ever lost the weight. Now, I know that God loves me regardless of my dress size.

Are we perpetuating future generations who feel that they are only worthwhile if they have lots of friends pinging, tweeting, and messaging them? Have we just developed new ways for people to feel insecure about themselves? I wish I had all the answers, but feel like it is certainly worth prayerful thought. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
