Recently my son and I were discussing a meme we saw, it said something like: it used to be that the news would tell you what happened and you had to decide what you thought, now the news tells you what to think and you have to decide if it actually happened. My son couldn’t believe when I said that the news used to try to tell you events without slanting them, that they tried to be unbiased. And it could be that I am naive to think that it used to be that way, but that is how I remember it.
A while back I watched a part of a press briefing. Later, memes and news casts were saying something was said there, different to what actually was said. I went over to a snoops page, out of curiosity, and saw that they also were saying that something was said, that wasn’t. Who snoops on the snoops?
I heard a preacher ask recently if we believe everything on the news? On social media? In the bible? Where do we spend most of our time and thoughts? ( I think it was Rick Warren but I’m not 100%)
Jesus is the way the truth and the life. John 14:6 God’s word is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Heb 4:12
In this day and age we desperately need more of God, more of His word in our hearts and minds. I easily get carried away by the most recent drama in the world. God’s word shows us what is of eternal value and puts our feet back on the Rock.
There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death. Prov 14:12
