Borrowed Light: Rend Your Hearts Not Your Garment (or Facebook Status)

Borrowed Light writes: Rend Your Hearts Not Your Facebook Status:
"Yet even now,” declares the LORD,
        “return to me with all your heart,
    with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
        and rend your hearts and not your garments.”
    Return to the LORD your God,
        for he is gracious and merciful,
    slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love;
        and he relents over disaster" - Joel 2:12-13

A quote from the Borrowed Light's author, Mike Leake:
"I often wonder if things like Facebook and blogging aren’t similar to rending our garments instead of our hearts.  How often do we see Facebook statuses that are merely a means to “get something off my chest”?  It’s the modern day rending of the garment."
