5 Lõkse Social Media

Klientide ametikoha Jessica Barefield

Lubage mul alustada andes disclaimer. See artikkel ei ole, kuidas paha sotsiaalne meedia on. Kasutatud mõõdukalt, õige süda poos, see võib olla imeline. Asi see artikkel on rõhutada mõningaid võimalusi, et sotsiaalse meedia võib olla lõks kristliku elu ja kutsun teid üles uurima oma südames, kui tegemist on oma sotsiaalse meedia tarbimine ja osalemine. Need on viis, et sotsiaalse meedia võib toita meie patuste soovide.

1. Sotsiaalne meedia võib raisata oma aega

See on midagi me ei ole kuulnud enne, aga see on väärt kordamist. Me meenutatakse Ef 5:16-17 et päevad on kurjad ja peaksime paremini kasutada aega meile antud. Mõelge hetkeks, mida võiks teha selle asemel, et kontrollida kõiki neid saite. Oodates ametisse, me võiks hoida nimekirja inimestest, et palvetada meie telefoni ja kulutavad need ekstra minutit palve meie pere ja sõbrad. kindlasti, ühel või teisel, me kõik oleme süüdi kulutuste tundi Facebook päevas ja kunagi avades jumalasõna. Kuna iga hetk on kingitus Issand, tasub küsida endalt, "Kas on midagi enamat väärt, et ma võiks kulutada oma aega?" Enamus ajast, Vastus on ilmselt jah.

2. Sotsiaalne meedia annab platvormi oma iga mõte

Ma arvan, et solidaarsuse avaldamiseks sotsiaalse meedia võib petta teid mõtlema, et see on OK, et lisada lihtsalt midagi. me kurdavad, me anonüümselt solvata inimesi, me ei austa inimest asutus, ja ütleme iganes me mõtleme kuulsused, sest kui nad ei ole reaalsed inimesed. Ja me usume, me tõesti ei pea vastama ühelegi seda. Ärge laske end petta poolt privaatsust oma toas kohe-seal on midagi era- kui me seisma elava Jumala ja anda ülevaade meie sõnad. Matthew hoiatab meid päris selgelt, "On kohtupäeval, inimesed aru andma iga hooletu sõna nad räägivad. "Olgem meelde seda hoiatust järgmine kord me uuendada meie staatus.

3. Social media can fuel discontentment

Kui me kasutame pikema aja valades selle üle, mida teised teevad ja ütlevad, see juhib meie tähelepanu kõik asjad meil ei ole või on kaotanud. See võib panna meid küsimus, miks meie elu ei vaata samal. Miks ma ei mõtle, et tsitaat? Ma soovin, et oli tema stiilitunnetus. Nende uus maja on kõvasti rohkem kui meil! Kui me ei ole ettevaatlikud, kolmkümmend minutit Facebook või Pinterest võib lahkuda sa end ebaproduktiivne, ebameeldiv, ja underwhelmed koos oma elu. Heebrea manitseb meid, "Hoia oma elu ilma armastuse raha, ja olla rahul sellega, mis teil on, sest ta on öelnud, "Ma ei jäta teid kunagi ega jäta sind maha." "Me ei saa lõpuks olla rahul meie elu nagu usklikud, sest me oleme andnud kõik, mis meil on vaja Kristuses. Küsige endalt, kas teie sotsiaalse meedia kasutamine aitab sul seda uskuda tõde.

4. Social media can fuel pride and keep you inwardly focused

Sotsiaalne meedia võib kiiresti muutuda omaenda poodiumile enesereklaami. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Me otsime poolehoidu või tunnustust? Kas me tahame olla ka mõelnud või hoobelda lõbus asju, mida me oleme teinud? Kas sa pidevalt kontrollida, mitu "meeldib" või "Retweets" oma ametikoha saanud? Kõik need asjad kütuse uhkuse ja hoiavad meid keskendunud ise. See võib olla eriti raske lõksu kõigile, kes on platvorm, mis ulatub nende sõbrad ja perekond. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, lihtsalt sellepärast, et tuhanded inimesed kuulavad, ei tähenda kõike, mis pähe tuleb, on väärt öeldes. Me peame meeles pidama, et Retweets, kommentaarid, ja muud sarnast ei anna automaatselt legitiimsus, mida me pärast. Jumal näeb motivatsiooni meie südamed ja ei ole kunagi petta hästi formuleeritud post. Nagu ma Samuel 2:3 hoiatused, "Ärge hoidke rääkimise nii uhkelt või lasta suus rääkida nagu ülbus, Lord on Jumal, kes teab ja Tema tegusid kaalutakse. "

5. Social media can distort our view of relationships

Iga kasu sotsiaalse meedia on suhete jaoks, on puuduseks. See on lihtne kursis, mida sa armastad (võibolla liiga lihtne?). Kas sul on veel sügav, sisukat vestlust inimene? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (võibolla liiga palju?). Kas üliküllus üksikasjad 300 inimeste elu, et sa ei tee head tööd armastav 10 inimestega, näed nädalast nädalasse? Me saame kiiresti treenida end olevat tarbijatele teavet asemel armastavad inimesed. Teades enda elust ja jagada kõike oma elu kaudu sotsiaalse meedia ei ole üks ja sama asi tõeline sõber. Muidugi Jeesus on suurepärane näide sellest, mida tähendab olla tõeline sõber. Nagu Jeesus õpetab, "Minu käsk on see: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, et ta jätab oma elu oma sõprade eest. "Sõprus on rohkem kui summa staatuse uuendusi ja pildid. Sõprus on ohverdus. See laager üksteise koormaid. See ei ole lihtsalt virtuaalse peab olema materiaalse.

    This is so true. I will openly admit that I waste hours and hours of my time and days on social media and all the points brought forward, I can directly relate to. I know in my mind and heart that I want to and have to cut it out, or greatly diminish it, but it isn’t easy. But the message you have conveyed and the words of God that you’re using to reinforce this speak to me clearly. Thank you for this article :)

  2. Tyronvastus

    Very good read! Was never involved in social networks until a little over a year ago and these are some of the reasons why. I have actually been thinking about deleting my social networks to focus on what needs to be focused on. Lot of good points here. Thank you for taking your time to write it and share.

  3. Danielavastus

    Wow! So true. I definitely need to work on my social media intake. It’s very consuming one of the very reasons I stopped getting on Pinterest. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Staceyvastus

    Thank you so much for posting this. I have been fighting with myself about getting on Facebook. Seems lately all it does is make mad angry. This was everything I needed to hear and will reread when I need to be reminded. Thank you and Trip. Jumal õnnistagu.

  5. Eulaivi Clutariovastus

    You are an inspiration! So many good points you have here. Praise God for your wisdom that’s understandable and very relevant to our generation! :)

  6. kasewevastus

    I have been cut to heart by this powerful sharing. I believe we are all found wanting in this area. Thanks Trip and Jessica. May God continue to use you .

  7. märkvastus

    Thank you so much, for thelittle peoplewith out a voice it speaks numbers to think oursocialvalue is derived from social media. Thanks for the wake up call !

  8. Oyishoma Emmanuelvastus

    That is so true. We waste precious time on social networks without purpose, and whenever purpose is not on ground, abuse is inevitable. I myself i’m guilty of this at times; but i pray for the grace to redirect my priorities.

  9. ADIN MOOREvastus

    This is a really good post. Thank you for sharing it with us, enjoyed reading it and it opening my eyes to the pitfalls of social media. :) arm & Rahu.

    Exactly why I PERMANENTLY deleted my Fakebook in early 2012. Just like how I gave up cable TV in 2001, I don’t miss either Fakebook or TV. FB makes it easy to love yourself, which is idolatry. Being on the computer for work (video editing) is all the more reason why I do not want to spend time on it in my free time, but it is so easy to waste time on the computer. If I’m on YouTube, it’s to watch edifying videos from other Christians. I HIGHLY recommend every Christian to read this article: “Forming our Souls with Facebookby Shane Hipps (Second Nature Journal dot com)

  11. Barbaravastus

    Omg I was so convicted last week by exactly what you saidspending hours on facebook that should be spending in the word! I love this blogkeep the knowledge coming!

  12. Priscillavastus

    I like your balanced position; not completely condemning social media, yet pointing out the issues/tendency for sinfulness. Reminds me of iLove.

  13. Rozvastus

    Tänan sind nii palju kirjutamise. It is so very insightful and has helped me a lot in recognizing that I need to limit my time with social media. Many of the things you’ve described are all things I can relate to. Spending too much time on social media is not beneficial for my spirit your blog has really put it in words for me. Again thanks so much

  14. Adamvastus

    This article caught my eye quick because my job is online and a big part of it is social media. Before this was my job I could completely relate to this. It really can be a time waster if there is no self control. It should be something approached with caution for sure!

  15. Naishavastus

    I saw this link on my Facebook and was dreading to read it because I knew it would convict me and today I said, “Okei… Let me have it.lol. Just about everything in here is true about how I spend my time online and I am going to assume that the person who wrote this article would not have posted this if she had not struggled with this herself in some way. So it is nice to know that there are other people who carry or did carry the same burden. At church you tend to feel like you shouldn’t admit to stuff like this, because we have created the idea that no one else struggles with it. Just the other day I was talking to my husband and telling him how I deleted some apps on my ipod (yes I still have an ipod and not an iphone, by choice) because it created unhealthy/ungodly thinking. I use to play Home Design where you can create your dream home and in turn I would become so depressed with the house we live in. I still love playing Mall World on FB and confessed to my husband that I like it because my avatar is someone I am not, she is pretty, skinny, independant and it is fantasy that I enjoy living through. Maybe I sound weird or people may think I shared too much but this is my own conviction. Thank you for reinforcing what I know by sharing your own conviction with us writer and other commenters.

  16. ChinaJohnsonvastus

    I will be deleting my Facebook and Instagram for a while. This was my wake up call. My husbands has been telling me about this and the discontentment has gone too far! Thank you Jessica!

  17. RJvastus

    Aitäh! I’m gonna take a week long break from Facebook, E-, and Instagram and work on those relationships I have with people I see in my daily life.

  18. Tylervastus

    Fantastic stuff! I’m a high school student and the part about putting so much stock into retweets and likes is so true! I definitely think their are some good things that can come out of Twitter/Facebook but it’s all about where you heart is!

    Really good post! Social media can be a little too much but when I see souls reach and they are planted into a church with their families and serving in church and in their community with the families.. That’s amazing to me.

  23. Jerdonvastus

    I love coming to this blog and reading all of these awesome posts by Trip and his wife. Keep up the good work you two!!! Jumal õnnistagu.

  24. katvastus

    awesome read. admittedly, i spend too much time looking at pretty boys and pretty things and getting caught up by all these superficial things on tumblr that i tend to push God aside. it’s a sad, sad thing; i could be reading up on His word and spending more time with Him….thanks for the eye opener!

  25. Charityvastus

    Wow. I thought I was doing good because I was just on two networks. This definitely helped me check myself. I thought because I wasn’t sinning I was okay, and of course there is always room for improvement.

  26. Yashiravastus

    God bless you for sharing this and thank you! This post just got me thinking about the time I waste with social media and its networks. It has helped me to re-think what I’m doing with time.

  27. halastusvastus

    I agree with every point. I for sure have been avoiding instagram because I found myself comparing my self to other girls on there. It’s not good to feel ungrateful. I like looking at cute animals. lol
    I considered deleting my fb, instagram accounts numerous times. I do think it’s good for keeping up with family members far apart though. :)

  28. home decorvastus

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Aitäh!
