Maybe you heard about the secretary was so excited about her new notebook computer she called a friend and said, “You won’t believe this new computer. It even has a button on the side you can push and a tray pops out for your cup holder.”
More and more the portable computer is becoming part of our lives and replacing the familiar desktop. While we as Christians don’t want to jump on every new craze or spend any more money than necessary on technology, making the switch to portable computing is becoming good stewardship for more and more people who depend on their computers to reach their greatest potential and be fully used of God.
If your work involves creative thinking, such as ministry, a notebook computer allows you to do your work in a creative environment of your choosing. Combining that, with the huge collection of economical digital Bible study materials available today, might make portable computing a smart way to redeem the time.
