Is it rude to over-expose what one is feeling even if it’s something as public & voluntary as a blog? Does it greatly damage the reputation of the person who is baring his heart and soul? The Bible says this in 1 Corinthians 10:23-24.
1 Corinthians 10:23-24
“Everything is permissible”—but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible”—but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.
Blogging in some respects can be a very selfish thing. I know I do it for my own therapy. Why do I just bare everything? Because it’s difficult having all these thoughts & emotions cooped up inside. It’s easier to just vent it out rather than to be silent about it. Maybe it’s a selfish thing to do … the question I’m asking myself is this; do I blog for my own good or do I blog for the good of others?
A part of me really would like something good to come out of this blog. Maybe what I’m going through can help encourage someone else who may be going through something similar? Maybe some of my deep thoughts will strike a chord in someone and lead them to discover what the Bible says for themselves? Maybe my foray into the music industry will also inspire someone else to pursue their dream to make a difference in our country and beyond?
What I do not want this blog to be is this – a meaningless exercise that I go through in putting my heart & thoughts down on paper. I want this blog to make a difference in the lives of the people who actually drop by regularly to read my posts. That’s what I want. So here comes the hard part … I leave it to all of you to make a decision through a poll.
Drop me a line. Let me know what you think. Because blogging for no reason means that I’d much rather stick to my own private journal and forego putting my heart on its sleeve here.
