Conveniences of technology cannot replace the influence of the Holy Ghost and fulfilling one's duty, Elder Scott D. Whiting, member of the Fifth Quorum of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said during Tuesday's devotional.
"It is important to recognize that digital detachment is an impediment to receiving personal revelation. The supposed need to constantly be 'plugged in' can drown out the quiet whisperings and subtle impressions of the Holy Spirit." Whiting said hearing those promptings, rather than other influences, is crucial.
"Every major decision I have made in my life, and many more minor decisions, have been as a result of promptings I have felt from the Holy Ghost."
