schadenfreude: (beginnings)
January 17, 2017 The Social Network

Do you feel like you "get" social media or do you just use it because that's where all your friends and family are?

Get doesn't really begin to describe my feelings toward social media. I'm still astonished by it daily.

In the Book of Genesis, it speaks of The Tower of Babel -- a united humanity of the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating eastward, came to the land of Shinar. There they agreed to build a city and a tower "tall enough to reach heaven"; seeing this, God, viewing such behavior as rude and disrespectful, confounded their speech so that they could no longer understand each other and scattered them around the world.

The internet and social media has created a united humanity once more, we've become a true global community. If something happens in Africa, the rest of the world knows about it within minutes. In the case of a disaster or tragedy, people are organizing volunteers and raising funds within the hour.

I believe that as long as we continue to love one another, serve one another, feed the hungry, help the poor, God won't find us rude and disrespectful. Instead, He will bless us. :-) :-)
