Agree 100%

Also agree with the comment of Harry Pearle.....everything today is geared for saving time and energy...a quick fix....microwave style of living...I want it and I want it now! Never mind? I'Il pay later! Fun fun ....I'm not worried about charging and maxing my credit card? . No! I have no savings and no patience? takes to long to save for the future? I want the easy life ...tomorrow I may be dead? Yes, let's eat and drink for tomorrow may never come?anyhow?...yet all of this pleasing to the flesh does not bring happiness.......pleasure in sin but joy is in the Lord.and His Word as this author so gratefully pain?no gain? Shalom.

Our Modern Day Laziness Has Much to do with the EASE of Technology

Thanks for your insights, Rabbi Sinclair. But I think we can say more about WHY we may be so unwilling to work harder. Technology, even the switch of a light bulb, encourages us to become lazy and impulsive.

Take this wonderful web page, for example. I am the first person to bother to add a comment. Writing a comment takes a bit of work and some time to think through. Why bother?

The solution may be first, to recognize the technology often inhibits effort and patience, and the risk of making mistakes. Second, we can try to add some pause and some exercise, all the time...

And yes, perhaps we can learn more Torah, if we back away from technology, and slow down, all the time... THANKS H
