To Unfriend the World

For GG 112

Where do I go to unfriend the world?

If I see images of cruelty to man or beast on my Facebook, I can choose to X that person from my daily feed.

If I, or any of my rational friends, start an innocent commentary and receive nasty, divisive comments on my Facebook feed, I can nix those persons from my Friends list without their even knowing.

If I see an article pass by that indicates a terrorist group hates us and that we should be afraid to go to the mall or a show or anywhere other than our own backyards, I can Hide those scary posts from appearing and click on a Scrabble game to calm my nerves.

If I cry out for help or affirmation and am ignored, at least I have the option to unfriend a person or just withdraw from a group, but

where can I go to unfriend the world?

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me.

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows.

But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” ~John 16:33

  1. I’m afraid the spirit of the world worms its way into our own hearts at times. The world isn’t people or things we can avoid, but as John writes, “For…the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life, is of the world.”
    It’s a real challenge to Un-friend our own pride, our ME first, and all our stuff-want!
