Digital vs. Physical
The digital footprint. This is one of those phrases that didn't exist a few years ago. It’s the trail we leave online. But it’s not like a physical footprint, because no matter what you do it remains even when history is “erased.” It’s how the sidebar ads magically show you the book you looked for on Amazon last night or the trip you priced on Expedia. It’s even how they can catch pornographers and pedophiles.
The digital footprint for any of us would reveal a lot. How much we’re online. Where we go online. Work and wishes, searching and shopping, habits and hobbies...all displayed.
Let’s consider another "print" we leave on life. Also one that often goes unseen yet will never go away.
The Jesus handprint.
This is created forever when we touch someone’s life in His name...
A word of encouragement.
A helping hand.
A listening ear.
A prayer for strength.
The gift of the Gospel.
The Jesus handprint reveals a lot. How much we love Him. How much we love our neighbors. Depth and devotion, faith and focus, care and commitment all displayed.
The Jesus handprint might be seen by some here on earth but is certainly seen throughout eternity. In fact, it’s the only thing that counts in the end.
One day, our digital footprint will finally fade away. But our Jesus handprint never will. And the ironic thing is that our focus on the Jesus handprint will take care of the digital footprint—and any other past, present, or future impression.
Today, where will you leave the handprints of Jesus?
All that matters is your faith that makes you love others. —Galatians 5:6b CEV
