It’s not a new concept in teaching on comparison to remember social media is a highlight reel.

But as with everything, it’s the heart behind that highlight reel, that only God searches and knows, that matters. Are we posting the highlight reel, desiring to inspire, staying focused of our overall mission of what is ultimately true, not our current circumstance?

Or are we striving to impress? To gain that instant satisfaction of a like or double tap because we’re starving for the approval we’re not disciplined enough to wait on from the Lord?

God, stir our desire to inspire people toward You, and help us to see the destructive pattern of what happens to us and others when we seek to impress this world.
