What are You Following?

Today (August 14, 2014), the following message was posted on our church signboard:





OK.  Admittedly, this might be a shameless attempt to bring in more followers to our church Twitter account.  People follow Twitter accounts to read Tweets- short comments about whatever’s on the tweeter’s mind.

Even if you’re not into Twitter, aren’t we all “Following” something throughout the day?  When somebody cuts you off, an unrepeatable “Tweet” of judgement pops into your mind.  If a store cashier accidentally gives you too much change, a “Tweet” of rationalization may pop into mind.  If somebody at work makes a mistake that you are able to correct, Pride might be sending you a tweet.

Our church’s twitter account averages about 1 tweet per day.  Recently, it’s tweeted information about Compassion, God’s Glory, and God’s Awesomeness.  If we’re going to grow into Christ’s likeness, isn’t it a good idea to think about things like God’s attributes rather than on things like our behind-the-wheel  rights?

Phil 4:8-9

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me — put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. NIV

OK.  Maybe posting a twitter name on a roadside signboard is a cheap attempt at boosting the follower count
(by the way… there’s a little blue button under this post that says “Follow!” You’re one click away from following PitmanUMC)…

But… if we’re going to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thes 5:17) shouldn’t we take concrete, practical steps to replace thoughts of judgement, greed and pride with ones that are admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy?

Following “Tweets” about God can be one way to do just that… “@PITMANUMC”…
