Reflections of Our Time

Does a million social media followers can be considered as believers? This is a timely question that we may need to reflect especially today’s Holy Thursday and Friday till the Easter. Person of public stature boast a significant number of followers who’s interest to everything the subject person has are followed thoroughly using the social media. It’s like a pyramid sort of cascading shared info or updates through virtual representation.

Are those people following us do also believe in what we’ve been doing? In how do we see things and appreciate our surroundings? Do they subscribe to the same idea we believe into? Do they seriously take time to contemplate on every post we do before they click the LIKE Button ?

Nobody can tell but the very person alone. Whether through clicking the button to like means the same as believing in what they see, read and understand can be likened  to the clouds we see and believed that we could scooped with, using tin can once were up near it. Believers are not the same as followers as it is either due to superficial adoration that they follows you in the social media or just wanted to be in the loop thinking your million followers might rub unto them. Be the most simple but admirable one as nobody got time to ask you if you believe the way they believe of things around you.

Reflect, repent and resurrect your faith to the Almighty. Have a safe Holy Week. – Paquito
