In 2013, no one has the patience to wait.

The computer vacum has everyone in the mindset of instant gratification. I think we have become numb to it.

Do we really know how to communicate with other people? Do we truly know the people we think we know?

Our Facebook and other social media profiles only display what we want people to see. But are we really living authentic lives or has this front impacted our lifestyle? When we spend time with a friend or business associate in person all of a sudden we see imperfections, flaws that are only apparent with human interaction.  Imagine a world where people posted their worst and best all the time. Could people handle that?

I for one think that if we were exposed for who we really are, the good and the bad, social media may not be as popular as it is today. We can’t forget that Jesus sees all of us… the good and the bad, and He loves us the way we are. In the end we are all sinners and we can’t forget that.

“For all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God” – Romans 3:23

But thankfully God doesn’t leave us the way we are and He builds into a person more like Himself.
