jkslvk Lemme be real with y'all. Last night I hit up this dope church and the message spoke volumes to me. I won't get into the details of it, but what I took from it essentially was this: a MASSIVE, overlooked issue in the times we live in today is the fact that in almost everything we do, we are competing with people subconsciously in order to have this narcissistic idea fulfilled that we appear to be better than someone or several someones. I think a lot of this issue stems directly from social media. LIKE DO I WANNA BE THE COOLEST CAT ON YALLS INSTAGRAM FEED WITH THE DOPEST PICS??
I mean, yeah.
Sometimes my heart isn't right when posting stuff man like I want people to think what I post is cool, of course. We've all seen and heard the analogies for the dangers of being thirsty for the "like" button. But there is something deeper rooted than merely saying I'm idolizing the "likes", which in itself is pathetic. So not only am I doing that, but I think often we, myself included, subconsciously look to BE THE IDOL by the things we post.
Like when I see sick pics on Instagram that tickle my fancy, I seek to one up them on my feed. Because if I don't, then I simply do not live up to the ridiculously high standard of this
new-age-coffee-hipster-esque-Christianity. In my taking part in this "I gotta BE THE IDOL" idea, I'm literally passing that notion on to the people that see my posts and causing this problem to snowball. Maybe none of y'all do that or are that into social media anyway but yeah. I do.
Basically at the end of the service I was kinda left trying to find a solution to this seemingly never ending circle of idolatry. Then my homeboy Matt says "the answer is Christ". As simple as it sounds, it's true. I gotta look to glorify Jesus and not myself. I want the people that see my posts to glorify Jesus and his goodness, not me and my whackness. Cause I'm really not that cool DESPITE WHAT YALL THINK lol. So yea man I hope this is understood and maybe speaks to some. Anyway,
Soli Deo Gloria!

Here's to posting dope pics and not keeping track of the likes throughout the day

jkslvk "'If God were good, he would wish to make his creatures perfectly happy, and if God were almighty he would be able to do what he wished. But the creatures are not happy. Therefore God lacks either goodness, or power, or both.' This is the problem of pain, in its simplest form.
...
We can, perhaps, conceive of a world in which God corrected the results of the abuse of free will by his creatures at every moment: so that a wooden beam became soft as grass when it was used as a weapon, and the air refused to obey me if I attempted to set up in it the sound waves that carry lies or insults. But such a world would be one in which wrong actions were impossible, and in which, therefore, freedom of will would be void."
- C.S. Lewis
