March 23

Has the shock of circumstances worn off of you? We have become desensitized by situations and no longer look upon the news in horror. There is a good reason; we’ve been lied to so much that we’ve become cynical and distrustful of the reporting agencies because we’ve seen that their motives aren’t pure. Remember seeing a weather reporter struggling to stand because of the wind, and in the background, you can see two people walking by effortlessly? It’s not a bad thing to be skeptical; I think we’ve reached a different level of intelligence when we can see through the lies and set our minds to seek the truth. We have to ask, “are they making up the news because there is nothing to report?” Is what we think we see the truth, or is it computer-generated or play-acting? 

There may be a deeper meaning to our words. For instance, why do we call the news “media,” and why is the box that sits in our living room called a “tell-a-vision?” If you look-up media in the search bar, once you get past today’s definition, you will find a story and a painting of a Greek goddess called Media or Medea. The picture depicts a woman killing her child. The television is projecting a vision, but not necessarily the truth. You can come to your own conclusion about those two words. Open your eyes and seek the wisdom of God.

For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. James 3:16-17
