Living the LIE

Social Media is the devil’s playhouse. You and I are privy to information that does us no good. The internet has taken away the joy of “unknown”. I love the fact that it provides immediate answers to questions that once required hours of research. Alexa is an amazing robot. YouTube is scary. Facebook is dangerous. Twitter is a gossip column and too many are blowing their brains out-their-mouths there. We are obviously ‘overloaded’ with information. What happens in Vegas or The Colony doesn’t stay there anymore. Everything and everyone is fair game. Every  day I receive ‘forwards’ from people who think the information therein is accurate and titillating, but the truth of the matter is often overlooked. I regurgitated a blog that sounded really good, but it was filled with erroneous information and that negated the good therein.  My teaching certificate didn’t afford me the freedom to demand my students to think as I thought. Goodness knows I go off ‘half-cocked’ a bunch. It was never my intent to teach lies. If those who graced me with their classroom attendance put me on some pedestal, it’s time to put the bust into the broom closet. I was as not always ‘living’ TRUTH, but I did try to teach it. I suppose, should there been access to my every action, no one would be impressed and I’m not alone, donchaknow.  GOD’s WORD warns of being too judgemental in Matthew 7:3, “Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye?”  There has been only ONE man who has lived on this earth, who has not “Lived a Lie”and look what happened to HIM.  One suggestion for your consideration is to note how grey the hair gets on the man leaving the Oval Office. You and I owe anyone who sits at that desk, our utmost tolerance. It is the office and what it stands for, not the person seated at the desk.  I pray that today all those ‘sad and in distress’ walk again in Peaceful Valley. I pray that all of us know that we do not have to ‘walk alone’. Undeserved, yet I am ‘too annointed to be disappointed and too blessed to be depressed’. Hallelujah!  That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.  AMEN
