Okay, this is too funny to not share with you and only Uncle Si and I could team up to do it. Yesterday, I got 251 “clicks” on lakedarbonnelife.com from Brazil. I get a daily report of how many clicks there are on the site and where they come from. I do get viewers from Brazil occasionally as well as about two dozen other countries, but why so many from Brazil? Today?
I literally laughed out loud when I realized what has happened. Each day posts are given topic “tags” on the internet. I had posted a picture of Uncle Si holding his trademark Tupperware Tea cup saying “This is the only World Cup I’m interested in.” Soccer fans, or as they call themselves in countries that don’t know what “football” really is, and call it “futball” must have been looking for information about Sunday’s real World Cup final!
Oh, my…or as Si would say, Hey, Jack — this is better than football – soccer – futball news anyway.
So how am I going to follow my Sunday tradition and tie the post to a Bible verse? Easy. This unintended deceit caused no harm. All deceit isn’t unintended, though — and it can cause harm if you follow the wrong folks, or join the wrong “clicks”….
Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect. . .” — Matthew 24:4-5
