What Goes Around ...
I was listening to the Laura Ingraham radio show this afternoon. They talked about the impact of “social media” on teenagers and young adults. They said the average teen spent over two hours a day on “social media.” And they said how almost 25% of teens who spend hours on social media have various forms of psychological difficulties, making bad life choices.
“It’s a cancer,” one person said. “It’s a curse,” a caller commented. “It’s a temptation teens can’t resist,” another said.
Later, thinking back on their words, my mind suddenly thought of another temptation that couldn’t be resisted, and a bad choice made. It happened a long time ago, and strangely, it was over a forbidden fruit. Traditionally, this fruit was identified:
