Pray before You Post
This may be so basic that I should feel like an idiot for bringing it up, but we Christians should probably pray before we write blog posts. Or write comments on the blog posts of others. Or write pretty much anything that other people will see. And I mean really pray. Not "just" the kind of prayerful attitude that we're supposed to have "without ceasing." But we should probably stop what we're doing, go into the closet, close our eyes, fold our hands, and make a clean break from whatever it is we're doing (at least briefly).
I say this because I know I need to do this. When I read blogs that make me angry, and make me want to comment, it's the easiest thing in the world for me to react in the wrong way. Sometimes I shouldn't say what I say. Sometimes I'm wrong. Sometimes I'm right, but I'm just a jerk. Prayer might help me to be more right. But prayer will probably help me to cool off, to be gentler or more loving, to be less arrogant, or to realize that maybe I don't need to say anything at all. And that would be a better testimony to the truth and beauty of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
