Day 20/31 Five Minute Free Writes: Audience

Day 20

We all live our lives with an audience watching, whether we realize it or not.  In high school, we’re all so self-conscious, star-struck or intimidated by those considered the “cool kids” that we may not even consider the fact that there is somebody looking up to us.  In a society now so saturated with selfies and live videos, it seems like the younger generations thrive on having an audience for very shallow reasons.  As Jesus followers, we are called to live our lives differently.  It isn’t just for our own benefit, but for others’.  Don’t be afraid to be the one who brings a 6-pack of Gatorade to the party.  It’s just as cathartic to say “fricking” when you’re mad, and not drop the F-bomb.  Be thankful, be generous, defend the underdog, and be kind.  Yes, people who aren’t Jesus followers are these adjectives, too.  But if you aren’t these things but proclaim to love God, to which audience are you pandering?  God or man?
