Reality TV

In the last decade there has been an explosion of reality TV shows, Big Brother, Towie, I’m a celebrity, Made in Chelsea, Gogglebox….and the list goes on.

We have a strange addictive fascination with them, interested in their lives, intrigued to see what is happening…have you ever thought that’s kind of like heaven? There is crowd of witnesses that are watching our every move, not in a creepy voyeuristic manner but watching our decisions, our actions and the drama of our daily lives. On the edge of their seats watching you and I in those difficult situations, what’s he going to do? Is he going to choose to be kind? Will he react? The crowd of witnesses reflect the heart of the Father in their longing that we would be like Jesus. Cheering us on, enthralled by each episode, wondering what we are going to do next. Longing that we would make decisions and choices that reflect the heart of the Father, choices based on the word, stepping out in faith, believing for the best, not living under fear…when we make those kind of decisions we show ourselves to be mature and true sons and daughters of the most high.

I wonder if I’ll get to watch that when I get to heaven?
