“It is good for us to be here.” Peter says to Jesus in Mark 9: 5 “Let us put up three shelters–one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” Perhaps Peter knew about an “Instagram moment” all the way back then? 😉
You see, Peter is with Jesus when this incredible thing happens – the transfiguration. (Read the whole story in Mark 9: 2 – 8). It’s a moment he wants to capture. That’s why he wanted to put up shelters.
Instagram these days is very similar to that. It’s about capturing and sharing our awesome moments. People like to share their loved ones, their cups of coffee, their great experiences…
Why? Because those things are precious to them. How could you live a life of “capturing moments” even without using Instagram? Life is beautiful! Let’s celebrate it more regularly!
