What Britt McHenry’s Viral Video Teaches Us About “Loving the City”

What Brit McHenry’s Viral Video Teaches Us About “Loving the City”

ESPN’s reporter, Britt McHenry, was both castigated and defended a few weeks ago in reaction to her mean-girl-goes-viral video.

That video made me think about a letter once written to the Israelites about “loving the city” by fitting in.

“Build houses and settle down…marry and have sons and daughters…increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which (God) carried you into exile.”

Infiltrating and fitting in is not a concept that gets much play in church circles.

We more often talk about separating ourselves, which may be the very right thing to do.

It becomes a problem when that separation leaks in a drop of superiority, which breeds a smudge of demeaning attitude.

And then, before you know it, some religious version of “Why, ‘cause I have a brain, and you don’t?” comes tumbling out of our mouths, McHenry-style.

If we are set apart by God, so that we loyally dwell with Him alone, how do we stop that from traveling all the way over to a superior, misguided, attitude?
