Choices in the dark

As life becomes increasingly public
And versions of who we are
Are presented online
For the rest of the world to see,
Hypocrisy becomes
Increasingly dangerous,
Because it has never been easier
To create platforms
To lead others
To shape culture
Sharing parts of our journeys in the light
While making breathtakingly poor
Choices in the dark.
Much is spoken of
What it takes to ‘live our best lives’
With healthy bodies,
Healthy bank accounts
And healthy organizations,
Yet ultimately it is the
Private decisions
We make behind closed doors,
And who we are behind
Private screens
That will impact what matters most:
The health of our very souls.

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?
Matthew 16:26
