“Play fair – be honest with yourself and the others!”
Scripture: John 8,32
Jesus says: „If you keep my word, then you are truly my disciples. And you will have knowledge of what is true. And that will make you free!“ (John 8,32)
Many of us can not imagine life without a smartphone – unlike parents or grandparents. And it’s also a great technology that helps me communicate with others, independently, at any time. If I experience something interesting, I can share it with my friends, preferably with a picture. Always up to date and all information in real time! But we also get quickly dependent on it. What if the other person does not answer? When others make an appointment without me? If I’m not „liked“.
And how serious is the other about what he “posted”? It’s great when we chat with each other – but in the end the question remains: what can I build on? Whom can i rely on? Who tells me the truth, even i fit hurts? That’s where Facebook and WhatsApp come to an end. Ultimately, I need a counterpart: a face, a person to talkt o whom I can trust. The motto of this month wants to help us to communicate in honesty: in the personal encounter, in direct conversation. Play fair! Be honest with you – and the others!
