I don’t know how many of you use Twitter or Instagram or FaceBook (I’m 2 for 3) but one of the coolest parts about any of these outlets is being able to talk about something awesome you’re doing, brag on someone you love, or show your followers something awesome you’re looking at.
Today I had one of those moments. I was in my house and realized that all of the following were happening at the same time:
– My daughter was playing adorably at my feet
– I was listening to 90’s music
– Golf was on TV
– I was drinking coffee
And the first thought that came into my head was: “This moment is so amazing…I should Tweet about it!”
The second thought that came into my head was: “This moment is so amazing…I should thank God for it!”
I would have preferred these thoughts to have come in the opposite order if I’m being honest. But it definitely caused me to pause and evaluate my own heart for a moment. Do I care more about people knowing how great of an experience I just had? Or about thanking the Giver of all good things for giving me the moment?
Unfortuately, more often than I care to admit, I’d prefer the attention of people than to give thanks to God.
P.S. I didn’t Tweet about it. I did thank God for it. And aside from this post, I’m going to start keeping more amazing moments between me at God…at least at first.
