I want to be relevant and not subsequent.
I will be empathetic and understanding of this world that I live in.
I will not be ignorant or outdated — blind to changes and evolutions of how society is changing.
And so I SnapChat and Instagram. I take selfies and I buy WarbyParkers… I’m fine with doing as the cool kids do, because like the Apostle Paul said… I become all things to all people that I might win some.
But I don’t want to be subsequent. Being one who follows after, redefines their values and ethics into the forms of the accpeted and acceptable and political — the familiar and the popular and carrying no abosolutely real identity.
Can I be in it, but not of it?
I participate to an extent, but I know where my boundaries lie.
They fall down to places where laces of shoes should never touch - less it causes a forfeiting of my soul.
Can I be immersed and immeshed into the Matrix, and yet remain distinct. An ambassador representing a superior kingdom but never acting superior.
