Oh Be Careful Little Fingers What You Blog

Did you ever sing that song,

“Oh be careful little eyes what you see

oh be careful little ears what you hear

For the Father up above is looking down below

So be careful little eyes what you see…”?

 

I’ve made up a new song

“Oh be careful little fingers what you blog

oh be careful little fingers what you blog

for the Father up above is looking down below

So be careful little fingers what you blog.”

 

I keep going back to Butch’s post about shooting arrows from afar.  It was brilliant.

10 years ago we couldn’t write bad things about other Christians on the Internet.  We just gossiped in our small circles.  Our words hardly ever reached those we were gossiping about. 

Now we blog. 

The written word has power.  Power to hurt, power to heal.  Power to strengthen, power to deflate.

Be careful what you blog. 

 

“I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today: I place before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse. Choose life so that you and your children will live. And love God, your God, listening obediently to him, firmly embracing him.” (Deuteronomy 30:19-20a)

    Please know in the depths of who you are that you and your husband are dearly loved by many, including my family. I know first hand that it’s hard to listen to the voice of comfort amidst the voice of criticism. But we must. I am committed to doing better with God’s help. Don’t give up! Even for a moment! Because Caryn and I have been EDIFIED by what GOD is doing at GCC. And we came as BELIEVERS!
    His strength is made perfect in our weakness!
