News Feed Greed

May 2, 2016 — 2 Comments

Relentless unattainable methods

The seductive ebb and flow of news feeds

Constant keyboard access

Instant intimate access to individuals

The erroneous pathway of statistics,

Constantly competing for existence,

Trampling compliments, community and meaningfulness

Read this,

        devour that,

follow this,

         follow that,

Lose this,

        win that,

                Less effort,

                more friends,

                gain reward.

                                   More effort,

                                   less friends,

                                   get ignored

Before the screen,

Darken its twisted sympathies

Call out its force fed empathy

Look up when heads are down

Outdo the machine of false appearances

                                    Be real,

                                    lose appeal,

                                    save your soul.

‘If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man [or woman], to gain the whole world and forfeit his [or her own] life?’ (Jesus Christ, Mark.8:34-36, ESV)
