Even as mobile phones have come to make our communication very easy, we have really allowed them to transform us. One thing is for sure that most people sleep with their phones under their pillows. You will even hear people saying that they cannot imagine a life without a phone.

In our day to day activities, we have come across warning messages especially in churches as a reminder of keeping our mobile phones off as respect for being in a sacred place. But most people tend to maybe ignore this or not taking it with the seriousness it deserves.

So you will find a high pitched ringing of a phone in the middle of a sermon and you can be sure what kind of a disruption follows. But this person is to blame for having the phone on in church. I remember an instance when a woman who had her mobile phone ring in church actually received the call and told the caller to wait for her call after the prayers are over.

But the there are instances when it appears that having a mobile phone may after all not be very necessary  or is a waste of time. Take for the case of a lady who is in a salon for the monthly treatment of her hair. In such situations, you will find that she takes regular breaks to respond maybe to the house help back at home and so something that could have taken a few minutes may in the end take hours.

Its true mobile phones may be very important to anyone maybe businesswise but it’s always good to do what you feel is right. This means you can put the phone aside may be even when in a meeting since it is not always about your phone but other things also matter. Remember your friend can invite you for dinner to have a good to have a good time together but your too much concentration on the phone can ruin everything.
