I have a twitter account. I am not over the top into it, but I do regularly tweet and follow tweets. For those on twitter, you know that many people mark their tweets with a hash tag. A hash tag looks like this, #gladforUrban. You can then search all tweets with that same hash tag. I am amazed at the creativity of some people’s hash tags. They are awesome. Many of them are funny, clever and original. I saw a couple over the course of this week that were just great. As I was reading a few of them, I had something occur to me. What if the creative, clever energy that was used to create these hash tags was being used for something that impacted others in a meaningful way? It is obvious people have the creativity and smarts to say really unique things. I began to think about what could happen if that creative potential was harnessed for impacting others or sharing the Christian message or promoting a mission or ministry. I began to think about the various “hash tag” things in my life where I have spent time and energy on being super clever and creative on something that was only going to last for a few minutes. So here is my big thought inspired by reading some awesome hash tags – You have creative potential to be used, so use it wisely.
