I recently saw a phone app called “Type and Walk.” It uses the phone’s camera to create a transparent document on which you can type while still viewing where you walking. That way you can text and walk at the same time.
I guess the creators of that app where tapping into the market of extreme multaskers. And while that is taking it to an extreme, multasking is a good way to make the most of your time. In fact God commands us to multitask.
In Deuteronomy 6:7 He tells us to focus on the things of God, and teach them to our children, when we are sitting in our house, walking by the way, lying down and rising up. In other words, we look for a way to bring God into the picture all day long in every setting.
I really doubt the “Type and Walk” app works as well as it sounds, but following God’s instructions for multitasking will always redeem the time.
