Smartphone Addiction, Responsibility, And Climate Change

After talking with my good friend, who still works in our local school district mail room, I found out that the newest employee is having problems focusing on his job duties, due to his smartphone addiction (he just can't put it away during business hours). Due to the smartphone's distraction, it could cost him money out of his pocket, for putting the wrong amount of postage on some mailing envelopes.

This young man (who is in his 20's, has a wife and young child), needs to realize his responsibility, not only to his family, but to the workplace employees as well, and put his smartphone away until after working hours. Even though the school district has a cell phone use policy in place, restricting the use of a cell phone during business hours, this young man seemingly refuses to abide by the policy.

It seems that our whole society is bent on being irresponsible at every level of responsibility, i.e., government, workplace, home. Self-discipline is the key to maintaining individual responsibility (here are 5 steps to developing more discipline). Integrating the 2-D's into the lives of our children and grandchildren, is paramount for their survival in an ungodly society.

And as far as President Trump recently withdrawing the United States from the Paris Accord Agreement (see video), this writer totally agrees with the assessment of  Michigan Congressman, Tim Walberg, when he stated the following:

"I believe there's climate change. I believe there's been climate change since the beginning of time. "Do I think man has some impact? Yeah, of course. Can man change the entire universe? No. Why do I believe that? Well, as a Christian, I believe that there is a creator in God who is much bigger than us. And I'm confident that, if there's a real problem, he can take care of it" (source).

Indeed He can, Congressman Walberg, He is more than able to "take care of it" (see here and here).
