What about a bit of reality? Why not my formal that was such a let down, my new car that is costing me a mint to keep on the road, my new friend who has just dumped me. Oh no couldn't do that - they wouldn't think so highly of me then.
Isaiah didn't do Facebook but I think if he did he would have posted no photo, but just the reality, I am undone. He saw himself as he really was a sinner before God, ruined apart from the grace of God. In the light of the glory of Jesus Christ He was released from the obsession with self to serving the only one who really has glory, Jesus Christ. Here am I send me.
So young Christian, stop trying to build your own glory. Your glory is fading fast. Soon you will not be that keen to post the sagging wrinkles or your latest wheelchair or zimmer frame. Be obsessed with His glory and post it for all to see, in a life that is released from itself to serve Him.
