#Hashtags

Kathy and I watched the Jimmy Fallon sketch about Hashtags.  

Brilliant.  Hashtags on social media are getting #ridiculous.  Even more ridiculous is when people use # in #EveryDayLife.

But I started thinking about the purpose of hashtags.  They started to make it easy to find topics on social media and to see what topics were trending and what conversations were worth following. 

Think about your day.  What would be the hashtags for your conversations? #sarcasm, #snark, #arrogant, #selfcentered?

What about your thoughts?  What about your actions?  I think if I’m really honest with myself, I wouldn’t want to see my life in hashtags.  Because my natural inclination is pretty selfish. 

But what if we tried to change the conversation.  What if we lived our lives in such a way that people would see some different hashtags.  

What if we were marked by 

#humility

#Love

#grace

#hospitiality

#compassion

Wouldn’t it be amazing if instead of using hash tags to promote our own agenda, we could see the values of Jesus in our life?

What’s your #hashtag?
