Some of the people I know who use Face Book are becoming disillusioned with it, due to the negative and argumentative responses that get posted. One of my good friends in ministry (who reaches over a million people a month) is considering dropping his Face Book medium altogether.
I just want to write today and thank you for not responding to my posts in ways that are “mean spirited” or problematic. Most of you simply read the postings without responding, and that is just fine. Those of you who do respond are doing so in ways that are edifying.
That’s exactly why I created Oboedire in the first place—to provide edifying postings that speak to our life in Christ. I know there’s no way to do that all the time without causing someone to disagree, but so far (thank God) you have not turned this daily ministry into a forum to air any of those.
Given the struggles some of my friends are having with such negativity, I simply wanted to write and be sure you know how grateful I am that you are allowing Oboedire to remain a positive influence, even on occasions when we may not see eye to eye with everything I write. Such is the nature of formative community, and I thank you for preserving the positive atmosphere necessary for Oboedire to be what it’s meant to be.
