What Really Matters

I read a great article yesterday over at The Resurgence about Pinterest.

The author talks about pinning to the glory of God- without envy, comparison, jealousy, or idolatry. Without worshipping the created things over the Creator. Without living in a fantasy world with an idyllic, unattainable self.

I feel like this relates to a lot of things, not just Pinterest. It relates to Facebook, and shopping, and conversations with friends, and visiting others' homes. It's a hard thing to do- to be in relationship with others without envy, without comparison or jealousy or idolatry. It's hard, but not impossible. For when we keep our eyes focused on the thing that really matters, Jesus' love and sacrifice, all the little things just fade away.
