I was thinking that if God put up His own Facebook page, He might get more devoted attention than He is getting now.  I can just imagine the number of “friends” that would flock to His site.  It might even set some kind of record.

And if He added the Scrabble app, He could sneak in some teaching and truth claims without folks even realizing it.  Of course any “reprimands” should only be an optional link, to avoid being unfriended.

In the photo section, He could include some of His greatest and most famous feats:  Moses and the Red Sea, Daniel in the lion’s den, the ascension, etc.  Pictures of sick and starving children or earthquake victims should best be left for tweets, though, since most folks are only touched by these kinds of appeals momentarily anyway, and He wouldn’t want to affect His stats by making people feel uncomfortable.

Since many find it so hard to squeeze in a quiet time between work, coffee with friends, shopping, running to music lessons and Tae Kwon Jitsu Arts, this would solve that pesky relationship problem.  While checking e-mail and Facebook posts, you could include God with those you are keeping up with.  It would only take a second away from adding flowers and avocados to your Farmville plot.

    Excellent suggestion! I have recently realized how much time I’m actually wasting on Facebook! The Holy Spirit is speaking through you, Lilly. He has a very quirky sense of humour! Thank You for the “subtle” exhortation, Lord. 0;-)

  6. Jesus has a few Facebook pages, I guess he keeps forgetting his password and has to make a new one or something, because every few weeks I get a new request to “LIKE” Jesus… I’m scared NOT to just in case he’s looking…

    I wonder what His timeline would look like too. Of course FB can’t go back as far as the beginning of the world can it?
    I love you humour Lilly. Thanks for this today. Made me smile, but also brought conviction.

I would love to hear from you!
