We need a lot of the things around us for daily life, e.g. work, school, etc. In fact, we are admonished to work in order to provide for our dependants according to 1 Tim 5:8. But are we aware of the point where they start taking over our lives? Our mandate according to Genesis 1:26-28 is to have dominion over the world on behalf of the Creator, not the world having dominion over us.
