Ọbịa post site Jessica Barefield

Ka m na-amalite site n'inye a disclaimer. Isiokwu a bụ banyere otú ihe ọjọọ mmadụ mgbasa ozi bụ. Ke ufat, na na nri obi postcho, ọ pụrụ ịbụ ihe dị ebube. N'ókè nke isiokwu a bụ tụọ ụzọ ụfọdụ mmadụ mgbasa ozi nwere ike ịbụ ụdị ọnyà a matara na Christian ndụ na-agba gị ume inyocha obi gị mgbe ọ na-abịa gị na-elekọta mmadụ media oriri na ikere òkè. Ndị a bụ ụzọ ise na mmadụ mgbasa ozi nwere ike na-eri nri anyị ọchịchọ mmehie.

1. Social media nwere ike oge gị n'iyi

Nke a bụ ihe ọ bụla anyị na-anụghị tupu, ma ọ bụ ọnụ ahịa na-ekwughachi. Echetara ayi na Ndị Efesọs 5:16-17 na na ụbọchị ndị ọjọọ na anyị kwesịrị ime ka ndị kasị mma jiri oge e nyere anyị. Tụlee maka oge ihe i nwere ike ime kama ịlele niile saịtị ndị ahụ. Nọ na-echere na otu oge atọrọ, anyị nwere ike na-a ndepụta nke ndị mmadụ ikpe ekpere maka na anyị na ekwentị na-eji ndị na mmezi nkeji ekpere maka ezinụlọ anyị na ndị enyi. N'ezie, na otu oge ma ọ bụ ọzọ, anyị nile bụ ikpe mara nke okodu awa na Facebook na a ụbọchị na mgbe ahụ meghee Okwu Chineke. Ebe ọ bụ na ọ bụla oge bụ onyinye si n'aka Jehova, ọ bụ ọnụ ahịa-ajụ onwe gị, "È nwere ihe ọzọ bara uru na m nwere ike na-emefu oge m na?"Ọtụtụ n'ime oge, Azịza ya bụ ma eleghị anya ee.

2. Social media-enye a n'elu ikpo okwu gị echiche ọ bụla

M na-eche na ịdị n'otu nke ikenye na mmadụ mgbasa ozi nwere ike duhie gị iche na ọ bụ OK biputere dị nnọọ banyere ihe ọ bụla. anyị na-ekwu, anyị anonymously kụọ ndị, anyị akparị ndị nọ n'isi, na anyị na-ekwu ihe ọ bụla anyị na-eche banyere siri, dị ka ma ọ bụrụ na ha abụghị ezigbo ndị. Ma ayi kwere na anyị na-adịghị n'ezie ga-aza ajụjụ maka nke ọ bụla. Unu ga-ghọgburu site nzuzo nke gị ụlọ ugbu a-a ga-enwe ihe ọ bụla na nzuzo mgbe anyị na-eguzo n'ihu Chineke dị ndụ ma na-aza ajụjụ maka okwu anyị. Matthew adọ aka ná ntị anyị mara n'ụzọ doro, "On ụbọchị nke ikpe, ndị mmadụ ga-enye akaụntụ nke ọ bụla akpachapụghị okwu ha na-ekwu. "Ka anyị cheta ihe a n'ido aka na nti, oge ọzọ anyị imelite ọnọdụ anyị.

3. Social media can fuel discontentment

Mgbe anyị na-anọ ogologo oge agbapụtara ihe ndị ọzọ na-eme, na-asị, ọ adọrọ uche anyị gaa na ihe niile anyị na-enweghị ma ọ bụ na-efu si na. Ọ nwere ike ime ka anyị ịjụ ihe mere ndụ anyị adịghị ele anya otu. Kedu ihe m na-eche nke na quote? M chọrọ ka m nwere ya echiche nke style. Ha ụlọ ọhụrụ bụ ụzọ ibu karịa nke anyị! Ọ bụrụ na anyị akpacharaghị anya, nkeji iri atọ on Facebook ma ọ bụ Pinterest nwere ike ahapụ gị mmetụta na-adịghị emepụta, -amaghị mma, na underwhelmed na gị onwe gị ndụ. Ndị Hibru agba anyị ume,, "Mee ndụ gị free si ịhụ ego n'anya, na-enwe afọ ojuju n'ihe mmadụ nwere, N'ihi na ọ sịwo, 'M gaghị ahapụ gị maọbụ gbahapụ gị.' "Anyị nwere ike n'ikpeazụ enwe afọ ojuju n'ihe ndụ anyị dị ka ndị kwere ekwe n'ihi na e nyere anyị anyị mkpa anyị niile na Christ. Jụọ onwe gị ma gị na ojiji nke mmadụ mgbasa ozi na-enyere gị kwere nke a n'eziokwu.

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

Social media nwere ike ngwa ngwa, ibu nke aka anyị ikpo okwu maka onwe ya n'ọkwá. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Ọ bụ na anyị na-achọ ọmịiko ma ọ bụ otuto? Anyị adịghị achọ-ọma chere na nke ma ọ bụ na-etu ọnụ banyere fun ihe anyị na a na-eme? Ị na mgbe niile elele ole "amasị" ma ọ bụ "retweets" gị post nwetara? All n'ime ihe ndị a-eme ka nganga na-anyị lekwasịrị anya onwe anyị. Nke a pụrụ ịbụ a ezigbo ike ọnyà a matara onye ọ bụla nwere a n'elu ikpo okwu na ọ bụghị naanị ha ndị enyi na ezinụlọ. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, naanị n'ihi na ọtụtụ puku ndị mmadụ na-ege ntị apụtaghị ihe niile na-echeta bụ uru na-ekwu. Anyị aghaghị icheta na retweets, comments, na-amasị na-adịghị na-akpaghị aka nye legitimacy ka ihe anyị biputere. Chineke na-ahụ nkwali nke obi anyị na mgbe ghọgburu site a mma-deere post. Ka m na Samuel 2:3 adọ aka ná ntị, "Unu na-ekwu okwu otú nganga ma ọ bụ ka ọnụ gị na-ekwu okwu ndị dị otú ahụ dị mpako, n'ihi na Jehova bụ Chineke nke maara na site Ya omume na-anyịgbu. "

5. Social media can distort our view of relationships

N'ihi na ọ bụla na-erite uru na-elekọta mmadụ media nwere maka mmekọrịta, e nwere a drawback. Ọ dị mfe ịnọgide na-eto ị hụrụ n'anya (ma eleghị anya, nnọọ mfe?). Ị ka nwere miri, nwee ezi mkparịta ụka na onye? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (ma eleghị anya, ọtụtụ?). Ị na oversaturated na nkọwa nke 300 ndụ ndị mmadụ na ị na-agaghị eme ezigbo ọrụ nke na-ahụ n'anya na- 10 ndị ị na-ahụ n'izu na-izu? Anyị nwere ike ngwa ngwa ịzụ onwe anyị ịdị na-eji ọkụ nke ọmụma kama ndị hụrụ ndị mmadụ. Ịmara banyere onye dịrị ndụ na-ekere òkè nile banyere ndụ nke gị via mmadụ mgbasa ozi abụghị otu dị ka ndị ezigbo enyi. N'ezie Jizọs bụ ihe nlereanya zuru okè nke ihe ọ pụtara ịbụ ezigbo enyi. Dị ka Jizọs na-akụzi, "My iwu bụ nke a: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, ka mmadụ tọgbọ ndụ ya n'ihi ndị enyi ya. "Enyi bụ karịa nchikota nke mmelite ọkwa ma foto. Enyi bụ àjà. Ọ na-agba onye ọ bụla ọzọ n'ịbụ arọ. Ọ bụghị naanị virtual-ọ ga-abụ tangible.

    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. Tyronzaghachi

    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. Danielazaghachi

    Chaị! 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. Staceyzaghachi

    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. Chukwu gozie.

  5. Eulaivi Clutariozaghachi

    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. kasewezaghachi

    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. Markzaghachi

    Daalụ nke ukwuu, 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 Emmanuelzaghachi

    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 MOOREzaghachi

    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 & Peace.

    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. Barbarazaghachi

    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. Priscillazaghachi

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

  13. Rozzaghachi

    Ekele gị nke ukwuu maka-ede nke 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

  14. Adamzaghachi

    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. Naishazaghachi

    I saw this link on my Facebook and was dreading to read it because I knew it would convict me and today I said, “Ọ dị mma… Let me have it.” akpa ọchị. 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. ChinaJohnsonzaghachi

    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. RJzaghachi

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

  18. Tylerzaghachi

    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!

    Wow thank God that was written for me,may the life giver always bless you and your family.Trip has always been the man of days The music,writtens etc keeps me awake.we thank God for you

  21. aha: For the Love of Lupe

  22. Mirandazaghachi

    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. Keinyazaghachi

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

  24. Jerdonzaghachi

    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!!! Chukwu gozie.

  25. TheMesengerzaghachi

    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

  26. katzaghachi

    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!

  27. Charityzaghachi

    Chaị. 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.

  28. Yashirazaghachi

    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.

  29. eberezaghachi

    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. akpa ọchị
    I considered deleting my fb, instagram accounts numerous times. I do think it’s good for keeping up with family members far apart though. :)

  30. home decorzaghachi

    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? Daalụ!
