I love watching Christian music videos on YouTube. I find myself doing it on my iphone when the kids are playing at the park or we are stuck in traffic. Watching the videos help to keep my mind focused and not lingering on ungodly things. I personally am a big fan of southern gospel music. I guess that comes from growing up in Texas in a Baptist church. :) So the other day when I was watching videos on YouTube I stumbled upon the song For Future Generations by 4Him. I haven't heard this song in a long time! I think the last time was at a concert I went to in Maryland where 4Him was performing about 3 years ago.
So you might be asking, What does this have to do with blogging? Well, I'm getting there. If you pay attention to the lyrics there is a line that goes like this:
So I wont bend and I wont break I wont water down my faith I wont compromise in a world of desperation What has been I cannot change But for tomorrow and today I must be a light for future generations
It can be so easy to "water down" our faith on our blogs. We might not want to offend anyone or to turn away readers. But by watering down our faith are we truly giving God the glory He deserves? Psalms 115:1 tells us, "Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, [and] for thy truth's sake." (King James Version) It is God we are to give glory to, not ourselves, and we do this for mercy and truth. Don't our readers deserve the truth?
Do you "water down" your faith on your blog? I would love to hear your comments and suggestions on how not to "water down" your faith.
