Facebook (FB) can be a blessing or a huge time user/waster, or if used wisely – can be an excellent way to stay connected. But one thing that fascinates me is how one can begin to measure their worth by how many “likes” they get with their posts and pictures. I’ve even read various ones complaining about how few likes and comments they get and wonder if they have any real friends who actually ever look at their site. I for one only go on FB maybe once a twice a week and I can’t possibly keep up with all the people on there. Nor do I expect them all to keep up with me.
My point is: our lives are becoming more and more measured by how many “likes” we get on FB.
If our heavenly Father, God Most High would comment on your FB, how many “likes” would He give you and me? Have you ever thought of that?
And what does our Father “like” anyway? We know he loves humanity so much that he sacrificed the Word as His Passover Lamb to be slain in our stead, for all our sins, that we would not be judged or penalized for our sins. But have you thought about how you can “love” something or someone, but not LIKE it (or him/her) very much?
Love should be stable. We love our children whether they are good or bad. God sends rain on the just and the unjust. And we love our puppy even when she leaves her land mines or calling tags here and there. But we don’t like her chewing up the furniture or my favorite still-new shoes. Or they were still-new looking.
So God can love us but not “like” certain things we do. He doesn’t like it when we love the ways of the world, for example (1 John 2:15-17).
So what does Abba, our dear heavenly Daddy who also happens to be God Most High, really “like”? Click on “Continue reading” to read a few of the scores of possible texts that tell us clearly what He likes – and doesn’t like.
