I don’t know why we call it “social” media … all media is social.
But that’s not the point of this post.
I’m trying to wrap my head around the fact that I consume tons of information from the Internet all the time and the only impact it has on my life is the time I waste.
Like, inspirational quotes and videos are really inspiring for about 5 seconds after I’ve seen them and maybe I’ll reblog it or something and then that will be it ‘cause I’ve already moved on to the next best thing.
All that inspiration doesn’t actually change how I live my life.
My Internet-derived knowledge about life is like my knowledge of Biology I: about ten miles wide and only 2 inches deep. Not even that.
And here I am posting about it like what I say matters enough to effect change in the life of whoever reads this post.
God, I hope I don’t treat my Bible this way.
But here’s a Bible passage that convicted me today anyway, just in case it’s actually true that the Word is alive and active.
"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do." - James 1:22-25
