DAILY DEVO...What's trending?

Every day, millions of people use Twitter, a social media platform to tweet some thought or event. Users determine by their hashtags (#) what issues deem to have the most importance. The problem with Twitter and other social media like it is that the real issues in this world can be overlooked or minimized.

Today on Twitter, the top "trending" topics were #HarrisonFord with 460.9k tweets and #BlackOutDay with 148.8k tweets. I am sure to some these topics are noteworthy but what about some of the serious topics around the world that can no longer be ignored or hidden?

Topics like the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warning or the ISIS threat, or the worldwide devastation taking place (360 in China killed by a quake or the dozens in Japan found dead near the peak of a volcano).

What is this world being transformed into?

While millions of Americans tune in at 10 pm to the TV series #Scandel, a show about adultery, murder and lies, only a small fraction of those same Americans will tune into #Jesus on Sunday morning at 10 am at the local church.

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." - Romans 12:2

The world operates completely differently than God. If we want to see #Jesus trending in our world, we MUST allow #Him to #Transform our minds!

What is trending in your world today?
