I love twitter. Its a way to connect with friends, and journal my way through the day. Here was my tweet from the other day:
What struck me today in my time with God...a time that did NOT start early in the morning, and there was no workout involved either :) ...is that I am very often quick to post about how awesome I am, but not so quick to be transparent.
Now hear me on this. I think its totally appropriate to share our victories with our friends, and I think that we don't have to constantly proclaim each and every failure. I just have noticed a tendancy in myself, and maybe you've been there too, where I don't often share my struggles...or tweet on the mornings that I overslept and had a rushed time with God. Or the times that I chose TV over Jesus...or whatever it is.
I don't like that tendency. None of us are perfect and I think we should be challenged to not create false pictures of ourselves. Our approval for anything in our pursuit of Christ doesn't come from readers or friends, who have a rosy picture. It comes from Jesus...who knows all and sees all. He is most honored when I pursue him authentically, not pretending to be more awesome than I am.
I thought this was cool news. I really appreciate the passion for the gospel and for people that Rick Warren has, and his heart to push us in the church to think bigger. Cool to see him as a part of the inauguration ceremonies.
Really loving the graphics for our current series, "Size Matters." We're talking about how our view of God affects everything. In particular we are looking at Money, Politics, Sex, and Religion. It's a fun one to preach... :)
