Guidelines for the smart use of technology (Highlights from Brother Ridd-April 2014)

“You have agency. It is the power to not only act on your desires but also to refine, purify, and elevate your desires.”

Principles to guide your use of technology

1)Knowing who you really are makes decisions easier

2)Plug in to the source of power

“Every time you plug in your phone, use it as a reminder to ask yourself if you have plugged in to the most important source of spiritual power—prayer and scripture study, which will charge you with inspiration through the Holy Ghost”

3) Owning a smartphone does not make you smart, but using it wisely can

“Don’t do dumb things with your smartphone.

4) The Lord provides technology to accomplish his purposes

“The divine purpose of technology is to hasten the work of salvation.”
