Depending on the individual, there is some subjectivity. On one hand, an older generation recalls the simplicity of dirt roads, no cell-phones, growing what was eaten, and a life without technology.
Adding technology, a black-top/concrete way of life, cell-phones, and then eliminating the garden, life can become a bit more complex.
On the other hand, a younger generation recognizes these advances as a means to simplify life and increase health and wealth.
Imagine leading people with both mindsets. We should remember that both mindsets exist in the world and the church.
Our task is not to place one above the other, but lead with both in mind.
