Clicking on like

After Luke 14:25-33

The crowds follow,

both for the miracles

(the fish, the healings)

and to see the elites

confounded (what will

this man say next?). 

They are drawn to the light,

but he knows their hearts,

ready to click on “like”

and go to the next miracle,

the next post, the next fad,

the next trending topic,

the next juicy gossip 

masquerading as news.

He stops. He turns. 

He asks, what if clicking

like means hating your

parents or children, or

giving away your 401K,

or walking into an arena

of hungry lions? Would

you still click like?

Oh, wow, Glynn . . . you certainly had me sitting up and taking notice with this one.
Jesus wants a lot more than a "like."
