The person concerned about their husband seeing their facebook feed reveals how easy it is to build up a social media version of yourself that doesn’t represent the real thing. The thought of her husband knowing that side of her is unnerving.
We all recognise this problem. We want to keep some things hidden, we don’t want to be fully known, we want to edit ourselves before public consumption. We can’t edit ourselves before God - he truly knows us AND he loves us - that’s the gospel.
“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.”Tim Keller, The Meaning of Marriage
