Pharisees (un)Anonymous

Session 2:

Too often, I’m more concerned about the external tidiness my relationships, public ministry, and quiet times instead of being vulnerable, admitting that there’s a bigger mess underneath than I’d like to admit.

Pharisees (un)Anonymous

Session 1:

When I think that I’m further up the ladder of holiness than others, I am essentially praising God that I am not like other people.  I should be begging God for mercy instead.

Social Networking Repentance

My latest Tweet said this:

Twitter repentance: The flesh wants to impress people by saying something memorable in 140 characters or less. Jesus died for that sin too.

I think with blogging, the same can be true.  Sometimes I blog just to look cool and sound smart.  Other times I really do have a passion to share something that grips me, but more often than not, I wonder, “Will they like what I write?”

So often, good things become ultimate things.  Jesus died for social networking sins, too.  O praise him for that!
