Death by Selfie

Death by Selfie image

A Selfie, otherwise known as taking a picture of your own self is becoming a very dangerous, even life threatening and even some people have died.

Try to get someone else to take your picture I know it can be hard there’s no reason to have 100 pictures of yourself or to take pictures I could put your life at risk.

They’re saying a new study shows that people die while taking a selfie is greater then people who die from a shark attack.

We are never promised tomorrow. That is why it is important to accept Jesus Christ as your person savior. Today is the day of salvation! You just might die taking that selfie of you like a recent tourist in Japan who falls to his death while taking a selfie at Taj Mahal.

I saw reports of people doing selfies with guns and the gun going off and killing them. A person posed with bulls and got gored to death. I am sure the list can go on and on. Even in Russia kids were electrocuted trying to take selfies by the cables of the electric trains.

Sad that they sell selfie sticks. I think these sticks need to be banned. It don’t take much time to ask someone to snap the photo for you. If not, the photo can wait or you don’t really need it. Most people use these at amusement parks. They are careless with them, I see where they almost hit people next to them with it.

Taking a picture of oneself shows a selfish ambition. That you really care about what you look like and what you are doing. We are in a selife crazed world.

Simple! Just ask someone around you to take that picture of you!

I know I’ve been guilty of Selfies. I am trying not to do selfies. But I won’t do a selfie that would put my life in danger. But, we never know just after taking that photo, we could slip or take the wrong step and fall down a flight of stairs and injure our head or worse, kill ourselves by that fall.

This really makes me rethink about taking some selfies. If you must take a selfie, make sure you are in a safe area to take one. Do not take one while driving or on a ride or such. Do not take any in a dangerous situation, etc.

Also make sure your heart is right is with Christ. If you have a problem with taking selfies give it to Christ and tell Him. He is the one that makes new creations. He can help you with that.

Think before you snap! Think before you selfie!

  1. Heard that yesterday. Crazy isn’t it?

    1. Yes just shows how much people think of themselves over their safety and possibly the safety of others
