Cut It Out

Standard

One thought comes to mind as I scan Facebook: Keep your nose in the Word and out of other people’s business. Then I thought, wait, your business IS everyone else’s business. It’s 2012—“back in the day” people didn’t constantly FB, tweet, shout it from the rooftops and streets what they were doing with a megaphone. Essentially, that is what this generation does. So, if you don’t want people in YOUR business, quit puttin’ it out there for everyone to comment on. Quit being offended if someone makes a remark you are unhappy with, as that is their right, and possibly their duty, as you may be offended if no one comments. Stop reading into what people are “saying” as they are NOT saying it…they are typing it, on a machine, which means there is no tone for you to hear or read. The misunderstandings and miscommunications involved in “communicating” via the computer are endless. If they didn’t mean it that way, then it’s fixable. If they did mean it that way, then it’s fixable. FB friends are just that many times, FB friends. I don’t look to the internet for my personal validation and neither should any Christian believer. If these “relationships” are causing you to become ill-tempered and ugly, you know what the Word says? Cut ‘em out. I get the feeling some of you might rather lose that proverbial hand or eye as opposed to your ability to post statuses. Mark 9:43-48

About chronicchristian

I am a mother of 2, married to the best man in the world for 10 years and chasing after what God wants for my life. I currently deal with some symptoms some like to refer to as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I refer to them as past symptoms as I believe God is doing something awesome and she who guards her lips guards her life. This blog is good therapy. Maybe not for you, but definitely for me. God is good and I intend to prove it.
