The consequences of feeding the beast

Former Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya said of social media, “If you feed the beast, that beast will destroy you. If you push back on it, we have a chance to control it and rein it in. And it is a point in time where people need to hard-break from some of these tools and the things that you rely on.”

This sounds a lot like the image-maker described in Psalm 115. After describing several imitation senses and body parts, the psalmist wrote: “Those who make them are like them; So is everyone who trusts in them” (115:8).

There is a better approach.

“We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18). The eternal things which are not seen are for anyone who has trusted in Jesus.
