5 Enkonvenyans nan Sosyal Media

Apre Guest soti nan Jessica Barefield

Kite m 'kòmanse pa bay yon avètisman. Atik sa a se pa sou ki jan sa ki mal medya sosyal se. Yo itilize nan modération, ak pwèstans nan kè dwat, li kapab yon bagay bèl bagay. Pwen nan atik sa a se nan pwen soti kèk fason ki medya sosyal kapab yon pyèj pou lavi sa a kretyen ak ankouraje ou egzaminen kè ou lè li rive konsomasyon sosyal medya ou ak patisipasyon. Sa yo se senk fason ki medya sosyal ka manje dezi peche nou.

1. Medya sosyal ka gaspiye tan ou

Sa a se pa gen anyen nou pa t 'tande anvan, men li la vo repete. Nou ap sonje nan Efezyen 5:16-17 ki jou yo ki sa ki mal ak nou ta dwe fè pou sèvi nan pi bon nan tan yo bay la ak nou. Konsidere pou yon moman sa ou ta ka fè olye pou yo tcheke tout sa yo kote. Pandan w ap tann nan yon randevou, nou te ka kenbe yon lis moun pou nou priye pou sou telefòn nou an ak depanse moun minit anplis nan lapriyè pou fanmi nou ak zanmi. sètènman, nan yon sèl fwa oswa yon lòt, nou tout nou koupab de depanse èdtan sou Facebook nan yon jou epi pa janm ouvèti moute Pawòl Bondye a. Depi chak moman se yon kado nan men Senyè a, li la vo mande tèt ou, "Èske gen yon bagay ki pi entérésan ke mwen te ka dwe pase tan m 'sou?"Pifò nan tan an, repons lan se pwobableman repons lan se wi.

2. Medya sosyal bay yon platfòm nan tout vye lide ou

Mwen panse ke solidarite a nan afiche sou medya sosyal ka je chèch ak nou nan panse li nan OK to post jis sou anyen. nou pote plent, nou anonim frape moun, nou mank respè moun nan otorite, epi nou di tou sa nou panse osijè de selebrite, tankou si yo pa t 'moun ki reyèl. Apre sa, nou kwè nou pa vrèman gen pou repons pou nenpòt nan li. Ou pa bezwen twonpe pa enfòmasyon prive ki nan chanm ou kounye a-pral gen pa gen anyen prive lè nou kanpe devan Bondye vivan an epi ba li yon kont pou pawòl nou. Matye avèti nou bèl kare kare, "Sou jou jijman an, moun ap rann kont pou tout pawòl yo pale. "Se pou nou pou fè yo sonje nan sa a avètisman tan kap vini an nou mete ajou estati nou an.

3. Social media can fuel discontentment

Lè nou pase tan pwolonje vide sou sa lòt moun ap fè yo t'ap di konsa, li trase atansyon nou nan tout bagay sa yo nou pa gen oswa yo manke soti sou. Li ka lakòz nou nan kesyon poukisa lavi nou pa gade menm bagay la tou. Poukisa nou pa t 'mwen panse a ki quote? Mwen swete mwen te gen sans li nan style. nouvo kay yo se yon fason pi gwo pase nou! Si nou pa fè atansyon, trant minit sou Facebook oswa Pinterest ka kite ou santi enproduktiv, désagréable, ak underwhelmed ak lavi pwòp ou a. Ebre egzòte nou, "Kenbe lavi ou gratis nan renmen nan lajan, yo epi yo dwe kontan ak sa yo sa ou genyen, pou Li te di, 'Mwen pa janm pral kite ou ni vire do ban nou. "Nou kapab finalman pou nou kontan ak lavi nou kòm moun ki kwè paske nou yo ba tout sa ki nou bezwen nan Kris la. Mande tèt ou si wi ou non sèvi ak ou nan medya sosyal ap ede ou kwè verite sa a.

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

Medya sosyal ka byen vit vin Podium pwòp nou an pou pwòp tèt ou-pwomosyon. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Èske nou kap chèche senpati oswa fè lwanj? Èske nou vle yo dwe byen te panse de oswa fè djòlè sou bagay sa yo plezi nou ve yo te fè? ou toujou ap tcheke ki jan anpil "renmen" oswa "retweets" post ou te resevwa? Tout bagay sa yo gaz fyète ak kenbe nou konsantre sou tèt nou. Sa a kapab yon pyèj patikilyèman difisil pou nenpòt moun ki gen yon platfòm ki ale pi lwen pase zanmi yo ak fanmi. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, jis paske dè milye de moun yo ap koute pa vle di tout bagay ki vini nan lespri se vo di. Nou dwe sonje sa ke retweets, kòmantè, ak renmen pa otomatikman bay lejitimite nan sa nou poste. Bondye wè motivasyon an nan kè nou ak pa janm twonpe pa yon pòs ki byen fabrike. Jan nou konnen mwen Samyèl 2:3 prekosyon, "Pa kenbe pale konsa ak fyète oswa kite bouch ou pale awogans sa yo, pou Seyè a se yon Bondye ki konnen ak pa l 'zèv yo te peze. "

5. Social media can distort our view of relationships

Pou chak benefisye medya sosyal gen pou relasyon, gen yon dezavantaj. Li se fasil kenbe moute ak sa yo ou renmen (petèt twò fasil?). ou toujou gen gwo twou san fon, konvèsasyon sans nan moun? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (petèt twòp?). Èske ou oversaturated ak detay yo nan 300 lavi moun nan ke ou pa ap fè yon bon travay nan renmen nan 10 moun ou wè semenn a semèn? Nou ka byen vit tren tèt nou yo dwe konsomatè yo nan enfòmasyon olye pou yo rayisab nan moun. Lè ou konnen sou lavi yon moun ak pataje tout bagay sou pwòp vi ou atravè medya sosyal se pa menm bagay la tankou se te yon zanmi reyèl. Natirèlman Jezi se egzanp pafè a nan sa li vle di yo dwe yon zanmi vre. Jan Jezi te anseye, "Lòd mwen se sa a: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, ke li bay lavi l 'pou zanmi li yo. "Zanmitay se pi plis pase sòm total la nan dènye nouvèl ak foto. Zanmitay se sèvis ofrann bèt. Li nan kote yo pote chay chak lòt la. Li pa jis vityèl-li dwe byen mèb.

    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 :)

    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. DanielaReply

    Wow! Se konsa, vre. I definitely need to work on my social media intake. It’s very consuming one of the very reasons I stopped getting on Pinterest. Mèsi pou pataje.

  4. StaceyReply

    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. Bondye beni.

    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! :)

    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 .

    Thank you so much Jessica for these words that are so true and conviction given. May God continue to use you and you household :-)

    Thank you for this enlightening post! This should prompt us to fix our eyes on Jesus and less on others and self.

    Benediksyon!

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

  10. Oyishoma EmmanuelReply

    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.

    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. :) Grace & viv ak kè poze.

    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)

    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!

  14. PriscillaReply

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

  15. SusanReply

    Thank you Jessica for this article & thank you Trip for posting on fb so I could see it & come to the blog to read it.

  16. RozReply

    Mèsi anpil pou ekri sa a. 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

  17. Clement MagomboReply

    God bless you for sharing this. I need to be pure and thoughtful in whatever I do online/offline. Grace ak kè poze

    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!

  19. NaishaReply

    I saw this link on my Facebook and was dreading to read it because I knew it would convict me and today I said, “ok… 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.

    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!

  21. RJReply

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

  22. TylerReply

    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.

  27. KeinyaReply

    Wow. This really spoke to me and I appreciate it. It’s so well articulated and has some great advice on ways to reflect. Mèsi!

    That is sooooo true it can take time away from god also you won’t seem to have the time 4 him we’ll cut it off make the time

  31. katReply

    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!

  32. chariteReply

    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.

  33. YashiraReply

    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.

  34. MercyReply

    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. :)

    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? Mèsi!
