I have a couple of friends who are runners (something I am aspiring to be). They have a cool app that syncs their miles to their Facebook page. I am always impressed as I am on Facebook and see that one of them ran 5, 10 15 miles.
Similarily, I have other friends who play all kinds of games (nothing wrong with it if that’s you) The other day I saw something in particular and thought, “What a tremendous waste of time, I would not want anyone to know I spent so much time doing that!”
This made me think, what if everything we did was automatically posted for everyone to see? Can you imagine?
Mary spent 5 hours watching a Keeping Up With the Kardashians marathon. John spent 3 hours playing Call of Duty on the Xbox. Linda spent 2 hours reading a tabloid magazine. Dan worked out for 1.5 hours. Trina surfed the internet uselessly for an hour. Molly spent 5 minutes playing basketball with her kids, then 45 minutes talking on the phone.
I wondered what I would choose to do if I knew everyone would know my every move. Would I use my time more wisely? Would I watch my words more carefully?
Would I do this?
I am not suggesting there is anything wrong with television, or Facebook, or Xbox , or cheeseburgers and fries 🙂 I am simply asking if the choices we make on a daily basis would be the choices we would make if they were visible for all to see?
Ecclesiastes 12:14 tells us 14 For God will bring every work into judgment,
Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.
Whether or not everyone will see the things we do, There is One who always sees everything we do. Just something to think about…….
