MySpace is a social networking website. According to Alexa Internet, it is currently the the fifth most popular website in the world with over 100,000,000 accounts. (yes, 100 million) The site reportedly attracts new registrations at a rate of 230,000 per day

That is a lot of people claiming their space. Even I'm on MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/christyramsey

MySpace encourages folks to have pictures and links to their friends on their web page, making room in MySpace for others. Some say that is the best part of MySpace, getting into each other's spaces.

I was reminded about having others in MySpace when I read a quote of Henri Nouwen in Arthur Paul Boers' book Never Call Them Jerks:

...[C]ommunity is primarily an interior thing. Everybody has to have a space inside you...People have to know that in your heart that there is space for them.

Paul talks about having this kind of space in 2 Corinthians:

...Do we need, like some people, letters of recommendation to you or from you? You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.-- 2 Corinthians 3:1b-3

Paul may not have known about MySpace, but he knew the most prized real estate is the space we give to others in our heart. When folks look at your heart...how many others do they see there? Are they introduced to Christ by looking in your heartspace?

Hope you add a friend to your heartspace today!
