We humans always have a plan or an end game in play. There is always a reason for what we either are about to do or are doing. We see this even more clearly as social media continues to evolve into who knows what. I imagine in time, if not already, social media will have a resemblance to our experience as humans. The challenge is, will we be able to keep up with all of the images, or portrayals of ourselves we produce attempting to accomplish the satisfaction of our own desires.
In the past when all we had, was basically written or verbal communication, by letter or phone. Where the “gift of gab” so to speak, was the art of accomplishing our end game. The beauty of discovering the truth then and now is still observation of actions and remembering what has been said. With social media documentation has improved. We see this in all of those who have suffered old stuff about them gone viral on the net from what was said either written or in video or photos. I think people will have to adapt, to protect themselves much better in the future. But what about when your young? That’s where the true danger is, be careful young people, what you say or do could come back to bite you where it hurts when your older.
My daughter who asked a question on a social medium of which I don’t remember verbatim, partly because its true, and to protect her anonymity. Asked what it meant when someone used the phrase “What do people mean when they answer its “complicated”. Here is my answer:
People don’t want to answer by saying its complicated. People walk around like they are carrying a projector screen saying look at the screen that’s me. They don’t want anyone to see who they really are, they prefer to present an image they can manage. Thus the end game. Figuring this out requires one to go for the ride for a while to see just what their motivation truly is. Being one who believes the Truth of God allows me to shed the skin of worldly pride and live trying to be honest about who I am and to others.
Being a Christian, I enjoy God’s Word, the Bible in how it works on me and helps me to become who God created me to be. Anything else is to settle for second best, I don’t want to live an inferior life, rather than the one God has given me, and I find it difficult to understand why anyone else would. My advise is to simply pick up the Bible and read, and while you’re reading, talk to God, and then keep reading to see what His answer is.
