Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.
1 John 4:11-12
Dear God, I really used to enjoy Facebook. Now, it seems to have become an outlet through which anger and frustration is channeled into a vortex that recycles and intensifies it. I’d say that, if anything, it has revealed to me just how many people out there say they love you, but just can’t help themselves and spew their anger. The scary thing is that I don’t think they can see it in themselves. If I were to talk to one of them about it right now they would probably agree that Facebook/Twitter/etc. has gotten out of hand and they hate it.
So that makes me wonder what kind of darkness is coming out of me that I cannot see. How are my actions keeping me from representing your love to others? Am I doing all that I can for all that your are? Am I dying to my own rights and embracing your cross?
Father, the message of this passage is pretty clear, but I can certainly be blind to my own sin. Please give me eyes to see and ears to hear. Give me the words you needs me to have so that I might show love to others. Be glorified in my own eyes and in others’ eyes through me.
In Jesus’ name I pray,
