I was supposed to be writing my “Focus” post Tuesday night, but I got caught up watching the State of the Union Address. For the first time in my life, I watched the whole thing. I thought President Trump did an outstanding job. But I’m not sure if my patience is going to last two whole years of political mayhem. It seems like only six month ago my social media accounts were covered in Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
My “Focus” post still isn’t written.
Scrolling Facebook and Twitter sometimes makes me want to put on my cyber combat boots, pull out my snarcasm, and start typing some truth. But with my bad attitude, I’d just be a clanging cymbal, you know, because it’s hard to show love to folks online who are politically insane. Scrolling social media can be bad for my blood pressure.
Fakery and Compelsions
I wonder why Christians post memes and stories that aren’t true. I suppose they do it because they don’t check the facts first. It’s just my observation, but they don’t seem to appreciate it when the truth is pointed out. :::grin::: But I have this truth compelsion.
50,000 points to anyone who can tell me where “compelsion complex” comes from without googling it.
Never mind, here’s a video:
Making the devil laugh
The devil likes us to get us engaged in social media wars. It’s a great distraction and keeps us from doing anything productive. When you get into political arguments, old slew foot knows you are not going to change their minds; you are going to enrage them. It’s not your responsibility to tell them what is right and wrong. They already know your arguments and they don’t believe it. They believe there is nothing wicked about killing a full-term baby in the womb. You can’t fix that. Prayer changes things, though, and the change might be in you.
