Sunday Pause (Paws): What Would Jesus Post?

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax.

This is a bit more serious type post than the usual “light” posts I try to do on Sundays. But when I write posts the ideas usually come from something that happened the previous week.

It started from last Sundays sermon at church that was titled “What Would Jesus Post?” It got me thinking about how there is so much negativity and ugliness out there on social media. There is also a lot of negativity and ugliness in the world. Of course there is good too. But often the bad is focused on more than the good as I find the news is, which is why I do not watch news. We are bombarded with messages that put fear in us, make us worry, feel angry, and so on.

As my pastor said the world is actually suppose to be a preview of what’s to come. We are not suppose to live as if this is all there is until the world ends. We are to live heaven on earth now. So what will heaven be like? No more pain, fear, fighting, abuse, illness, and so on. OK…so we can’t make ALL that happen now but we can do our part to try to live our lives as God intended. We can practice loving one another and loving dominion over the earth and the animals. When we do that we bring a little bit of heaven to earth.
