We are surrounded by an audience always. Whether that audience is social media, passers by, our family, friends or neighbours or the audience of God whom I believe is there. This follows on from yesterday’s post on “who” and still has me thinking about what audience I am tuning in to for a response, for affirmation and for direction.
Do the random thoughts of a passer by matter? Do the judgements of people out there in internet land who don’t know me matter? What audience are you listening to and watching for?
For me, the audiences I want to count are God, my family and my friends. This isn’t to say who cares about anyone else and I can offend whoever I like, because that isn’t showing the love and respect I want to develop either. This is to say I want to spend most of my time and energy pursuing what matters and the engagement with those audiences that count.
