I was thinking this morning about my friend Andrew’s plan to quit social media. He’s already stepped back from it (and inspired me to delete the Facebook app from my phone), but a full-on abandonment of how social media platforms have changed our global civilization’s culture — that’s a deeper move altogether in 2018. It represents a return to older values in this digital humanoid network. I support it.
Reminds me of the one verse of Scripture that I’ve bothered to memorize, the one piece that I think sums up a very important set of principles to me: “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.”
Put another way: “Climb a mountain. Tell no one.”
