The Click "Like" Addiction

James 1:27...... and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Just wanted to share a few thoughts on the press like button on social sites. Not to condemn anyone, but a little reminder  that's all. We Christian's would like to think we are doing a  great service in sharing our thoughts , actions , songs , sermons or whatever we are conveying to the public , and surely we are at least to some degree.  Now addressing the addictive side of it , We must watch for the dangers of what we want to convey , turning into competition as it were.  Now if we are serious Christians , we want what we say , to have some impact among the millions of voices on the internet. The addiction to get likes can create such a competitive edge, that we no longer spend quality time in our relationship with God , and He is the one we want to bring Glory to; [ or at least we should want that] I had some pastors tell me , they are not nearly as anointed as they used to be , for getting caught up in the "very thing" we are discussing.  No time spent in prayer or studying the word , and now there's no freshness to their preaching , praying and so on. Its not just pastors , but any individual "professing" to be a Christian"  and wanting to make an impact on their fellow man.  Again , just a friendly reminder to all of us who want to have power in our words to make a difference in our society .  Let us watch out for the press like addiction and spend more quality time with our Lord , so we can have that freshness of his touch. By the way: Like This LOL.

God bless you in your journey!!

Very Wise words, they recueradan me what was said by the Apostle Paul in 2 Timothy chapter Quote 3: The character of the men in the last days men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blassfemos, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. Blessed be the Servant.
