Rantings of an Old Curmudgeon! (Social Media)

screen-shot-2017-01-25-at-4-50-23-amOkay.  Okay. So I just turned 67.  I don’t feel 67.  Some days I don’t feel older than, say, 62.  But I’ve got a lot of life left in me.  And a lot of things get me goin’!

Today’s topic is . . . MEDIA.  Much of the media I see isn’t very social!  My wife and I went out for supper the other night, yes, around 4:30 or 5 pm (I can’t remember which), and we watched other couples at this restaurant.  Guess what they were doing?  Husband, wife — they were both checking their phones.  They weren’t talking to each other.  What’s SOCIAL about that?

Even worse is when there’s a child involved.  Instead of talking with their child, explaining how people ought to behave in public, their child is playing video games on a $600 tablet.   Head down (not in prayer), but in battle strategy.  No one’s talking to each other.  That just ticks me off — makes me want to go over there and say something like, “Are you people a family?  screen-shot-2017-01-25-at-5-03-24-amExcuse me.  Now that I have your attention.  Do you people live in the same house?  Why aren’t you talking with one another?  If you pay for our dinner (we share one entree), we’ll come over and show you how it’s done.”

I would then say, “If you won’t invite us over, at least let me show you how to FaceTime each other.”

Psalms of the Salter: Some Thoughts on Really Living for the Lord (Psalm 92)

Please read this excellent article from John Piper on Trump’s inauguration today found here.  It is entitled “How to Live Under an Unqualified President.”

Psalm 92 A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.screen-shot-2016-10-09-at-6-07-46-am

It is good to praise the Lord
    and make music to your name, O Most High,
proclaiming your love in the morning
    and your faithfulness at night,
to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
    and the melody of the harp.

For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord;
    I sing for joy at what your hands have done.
How great are your works, Lord,
    how profound your thoughts!
Senseless people do not know,
    fools do not understand,
that though the wicked spring up like grass
    and all evildoers flourish,
    they will be destroyed forever.

But you, Lord, are forever exalted.

For surely your enemies, Lord,
    surely your enemies will perish;
    all evildoers will be scattered.
10 You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox;
    fine oils have been poured on me.
11 My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries;
    my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.

12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
    they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
13 planted in the house of the Lord,
    they will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They will still bear fruit in old age,
    they will stay fresh and green,
15 proclaiming, “The Lord is upright;
    he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”
