I ran across a short article by Hal Lindsey entitled, “Living for Likes on Social Media.” He insinuated that we in America have “made a god out of popularity on social media.” Ouch! That is kind of convicting. I think that we all like to be liked by others, but I think we can let it go too far. When we start to live for those likes, when we go out of our way to get more likes on Facebook, we go too far. We may be guilty of making a god out of popularity.
Well, I’m not on Facebook, but I’m on a blog—as you know. And I don’t get very many likes—just one or two per blog. I sort of wish I would get more, just to know that someone is reading me. But now that I read this article by Lindsey, I feel better—more content. I don’t want to be included in the group that is bowing down to the god of popularity. And it is so sad just to think that there are so many doing it.
