This episode of Let’s Talk was recorded live in Indianapolis at TGCW22. Jackie Hill Perry, Jasmine Holmes, and Melissa Kruger discuss gratitude—why we struggle with it and how to cultivate it in our lives.

The Bible commands us not to covet what belongs to our neighbors. As Melissa points out, social media has made that command far more challenging to obey. She says, “The reality for us is we used to have like four neighbors. And now you can have 5,000 neighbors. You can look over the fence into somebody else’s life, but it’s a curated life. At least with your [real] neighbor, you can be like, ‘Yeah, I mean, their grass is really green, but their bushes are a mess.’”

If you’ve ever struggled to be thankful, listen in to this conversation for practical wisdom on walking in gratitude.

Is the digital age making us foolish?

Do you feel yourself becoming more foolish the more time you spend scrolling on social media? You’re not alone. Addictive algorithms make huge money for Silicon Valley, but they make huge fools of us.

It doesn’t have to be this way. With intentionality and the discipline to cultivate healthier media consumption habits, we can resist the foolishness of the age and instead become wise and spiritually mature. Brett McCracken’s The Wisdom Pyramid: Feeding Your Soul in a Post-Truth World shows us the way.
