Minimizing the Soundbytes

This season of Lent, I’ve been pondering this verse:

Yes, he humbled you by letting you go hungry and then feeding you with manna, a food previously unknown to you or your ancestors. He did it to teach you that people do not live by bread alone; rather, we live by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. (Deuteronomy 5:8, New Living Translation) 

And I’ve been consider where I need to feel hungry so I can know more of God’s sovereignty and presence. So I’m withdrawing my time on Facebook, checking it every other day, for no longer than 3 minutes. I don’t want to be a browser of people but rather an engager. I don’t want affirmation from a little thumbs-up button which took a half second to click. I want genuine, messy relationships with others in which I get to affirm others.

I want this to be a season of rejuvenation and rejoicing as opposed to bitterness and passivity.
