Consider the Source

Consider the source…. 

It’s pretty easy these days to learn just about anything on the internet. 

What is interesting to me is that our whole culture seems to be adapting to this form or information gathering. 

While this is helpful to have instant access, it can also be harmful at times if we don’t consider the source. 

Most information is fueled by a person or host site. 

Depending on what their preferences and opinions are, it seems the facts can be twisted to carry the message they want to share. 

Our current political climate is a great example. 

I will share what I have learned from personal experience and that is this simple fact…

Just because it’s on the internet, TV, or radio, does not mean it’s true! 

Jesus gave us a great example of dealing with His era of social media when He walked the earth with His statement about casting the first stone. 

Please do yourself a favor and consider the source of the information you are gathering before you form your opinions and, as always,.. 

Check your experience … 

“but we let God be the final judge.” Big Book pg. 70 

Lord, let us look at our actions, efforts, and behaviors and leave the judging of others up to you, AMEN. 

“Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” John 8:7 

 Have a blessed day Y’all! 

Join me in looking at the things we face daily with passages from both the Big Book and Bible! 

 How about a daily dose of hope and inspired thought?
