When to use the delete key


Twitter, Facebook, blogs and other communication tools enhance the speed of disseminating thoughts and information.

The question I ask myself this morning is how do I determine what is worth communicating? Is there a test which determines when the delete key should be used?

I believe that Paul gives us such a test in 1 Corinthians 13. Paul tells me that without love I am a noisy gong or clanging cymbal. Therefore, I must determine if my message conveys the love that I receive from God. If it does not, or if it is incompatible with love, then the delete key is the only remedy.

The internet is full of noise and clanging, it is my hope that I will not increase the volume.
