During Morning Prayer today, Psalm 101 stood out for me. Recently I have decided to renew my social media presence and in that process decided to delete my old Twitter account and start a new one that was entirely focused on Christianity, catholicism and Anglicanism. I have been at it for just over two weeks and it has been a complete change in my online activity. It is certainly a change for the better from the negativity of politics and news that flooded my timeline and thus my life with my old account.
But Psalm 101 today read like a clear Christian manifesto for following and blocking people on Twitter.
I will not set before my eyes whatever is base. The man who slanders his neighbor in secret I will bring to silence. There is some powerful stuff there for sure.
Increase in us, Lord, your gift of faith,
so that the praise we offer you
may ever yield its fruit from heaven.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
