For Innocent And Noble Purposes

“If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, he is conceited and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth.” (1 Timothy 6:3–5, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – My son will get a kick out of this one.  There was a time (his college years) he would roll his eyes because we had no clue what FaceBook was or why the younger generation were so taken by it.  Now that us “old people” have taken it over it’s a different story.  But how else would we get our “news?”  How else, in the age of COVID-19, would we “socialize?”

My Advice – Sometimes innocent (catching up on the news) and noble things (social networking) can be misused.  Controversies, quarrels, envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction.  Sound familiar?  While we don’t necessarily have to “live on FaceBook,” we can be a light that shines in the darkness. Even there.  Let’s use it for innocent and noble purposes.  Who knows, if we do a good enough job, we may just be taken down by the FaceBook “police.”

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
