Christine Caine — Help Me to See
Do you know that throughout our lifetime, I did the research. This changes every day. But there were 24 billion selfies uploaded in the last year. 24 billion. That's amazing. What they say is that there's one million selfies a day being uploaded. We are obsessed with ourselves. We love to look at our, we've got no time to look at anybody else because we're just looking, oh, do I look good? And I want to show you my most authentic self, so I want to be transparent, I want to be vulnerable. I want this to be just authentic. Because we're just all authentic.
So I'm gonna get out under the right light, and I need the right angle, and I need my hair in the right way, and then I need to put on the right filter so I can post my most authentic self up there for everybody because it's just got to look great. And if it doesn't get enough likes in the first 10 seconds, I'll delete it and take another one, because I've got nothing better to do than to look at myself. I'm just, we're spending so much time. We are so self-absorbed. We are raising a generation of hashtag selfies.
Jesus scrolled past all the highlight reels and social statuses to get to the heart of humanity. And as his followers, it's time to turn the selfie camera around and focus on the world around us. There is so much more to you than a self-satisfying simple life. You were meant to impact the world. You may be thinking, Christine, you don't know me, what I've been through, my limitations. And you're right. I don't, but God does and he's still called you. I'm Christine Caine and I have a personal mission to equip and empower people like you to connect with your God-given purpose and potential. I'm so glad that you're joining us today. Let's get right to it.
