The Apple Watch Won’t Make You Exercise
DRF—There are two types of people in the world, those that love Apple products and those that hate them. A major news story criticized the Apple Watch because it did not make people exercise. This is confusing a tool with an action. If I buy a hammer, I shouldn’t carp, ‘that hammer didn’t build my new house.’ Tools only work when they are put into action. The journalist forgot that the Apple Watch is a tool.
A tool is just a tool and will sit idly by until put into use. Human agents use tools with creative energy and sweat-producing intensity. When we confuse a tool and an action, we create excuses for our inactivity. “A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to relax, and your poverty will come like a robber, and your need like an armed man.” Proverbs 6:10-11 NET Bible®
