WAKE UP WORDS: APRIL 26, 2021
BE A VOICE NOT AN ECHO. The world is full of echos right now. In the age of social media it's easy to grab onto info that supports our world view (whether it's accurate or not) and echo it loudly for all to hear. Echos easily become noise and take away from the beauty of every day life. An echo just regurgitates someone else's thoughts. BUT, a voice comes from someone who is brave enough to offer their unique perspective AFTER getting the full scope of an issue. When we are able to speak after critically thinking through an issue, when we have something valuable to add to the conversation THEN our voice can actually create positive change in a sea of noise. Today we all get to choose: Will we regurgitate news headlines that were designed to outrage OR will we take a minute to research, think about/pray about and then share if we have something to offer? One choice is easy and feels good in the moment, the other can actually create positive change, calm our media induced outrage and build community. Choose wisely friends!
