[B]eing distracted is not sinful per se, and we may be tempted to dismiss deep contemplation as only the province of professional scholars. But in fact, there is at least one area of life in which focused attention and deep reflection are crucial for all Christians: worship and prayer. God is not honored (and we ourselves are little edified) by worship rendered with distracted hearts and minds unwilling—or even unable—to probe “the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God” (Rom 11:33). We saw in the previous chapter that Scripture on many occasions speaks about Christians glorifying God, and it envisions Christians doing so above all through worship. Thus, to the extent that our new technology pushes us to distraction and threatens to hinder our ability to concentrate and to dig deeply into worthy matters, it behooves us to be on guard against its encroachment into the whole of life.
