Dusting Off Our Profile

English Audio Version

Social media sometimes seems like a comparison of me and you.

You post a picture of your freshly cleaned house, and I scramble to make mine look even neater.

Whose vacation is more enticing? The most waterfalls, exciting meals, the best views from our airplane window?

Some people poke fun by posting closeup images sitting in front of an airplane window enjoying the sea in the distance—only to reveal the joke in the picture. The “window” is a toilet seat and the view is on a tablet or TV.

Surely “us” is good enough. Who we are shouldn’t need to be tucked off to the side so that we can appear better than we really are.

We’re pretty special in ourselves, after all.

Do this: Take out paper and make a list of the places you’ve been, things you’ve done, and exciting people you’ve met. The list will likely be longer than you realize.

Let’s do that by listing spiritual milestones, also. They make us who we are in Christ, and we should share them. They will build the faith of those who come after us.

Deuteronomy 11:19 says:

“You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”

Our children need to know who we are. We don’t have to be a Billy Graham, Joyce Meyer, or Joel Osteen. We’re excellent in ourselves.

We are each foundation stones in the kingdom of God, and our story deserves to be told.

Let’s dust off the things we’ve done for God. Share them about. Let’s tell the goodness of what God has done through us.

God’s blessing flows when we open our mouths to speak of him.

Excerpt of the Day

What we pack is what gives us power. Let's pack the power of God so that others may come to him in truth and in power.
