I am reminded of our human nature every single day. Our striving for looking our best, looking like we are succeeding in life and living our dream out. We constantly try to look our best on social media. To showcase our best and most curated version of ourselves. The stories behind our accomplishments and every day life, all the tears that has been shedding, all the angry words that has been sad rarely make it to social media. And it is not only applicable for social media. In our real life we do the same. We try to make a good impression on those around us by being happy and being our best.
Sometimes God calls people to do very ‘unglamorous’ things. For instance the prophets. They were called to preach the words God spoke to them and it was often words about repentance and the bad things that would happen if people did not turn away from their wicked ways and turn their hearts back to God. A glamorous job to tell people these often welcomed words? No. And indeed those words were not welcomed. Often the prophets were mocked and looked down on.
