Le nto bangevanga ngaphambi kokuba, kodwa kuluncedo eliphindaphindayo. Sikhunjuzwa kwi Efese 5:16-17 ukuba le mihla ayindawo yaye simele senze ukusetyenziswa kakuhle kwexesha elinikiweyo kuthi. Cinga umzuzwana ungaba ukwenza ntoni endaweni ekutshekisheni yonke loo ndawo.

3. Social media can fuel discontentment

Xa sichitha ixesha elongeziweyo wathulula phezu koko abanye bakwenzayo esithi, basondelelane ingqalelo yethu zonke izinto musa sibe okanye uphoswa. Kunokusenza ukuthandabuza kutheni ubomi bethu musa zikhangeleka ngokufanayo. Kutheni na ndicinga ukuba quote? Akwaba bendinale ingqiqo yakhe isimbo. indlu yabo entsha lukhudlwana indlela kuneyethu!

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

amajelo Social anokukhawuleza eqongeni zethu self-promotion. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Ngaba ufuna uvelwano okanye indumiso?

UThixo ubona kukhuthazwa iintliziyo zethu yaye akazange ukuqhathwa isithuba eyakhiwe. Njengoko uSamuweli 2:3 elumnkisa, "Musa ukuthetha loo nto ngebhongo okanye ke umlomo wakho uthethe ikratshi enjalo, ngokuba uYehova nguThixo owaziyo kwaye ngezenzo Yena eziyincamisa. "

5. Social media can distort our view of relationships

Kuba wonke kuxhamla amajelo zentlalo analo ubudlelwane, kukho drawback. Kulula ukugcina nabo nawe umthande (mhlawumbi kulula kakhulu?). Ngaba usenayo enzulu, incoko enentsingiselo umntu? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (mhlawumbi baninzi kakhulu?). Ngaba oversaturated kunye neenkcukacha 300 ubomi babantu, ukuba akuyi esenza umsebenzi olungileyo umthande 10 abantu ubona ngokweveki neveki? Sinako ngokukhawuleza sizifundise ukuba abathengi ulwazi endaweni abathandi abantu. Ukwazi ngobomi bomntu nokwabelana yonke into eqhubekayo ebomini bakho ngokusebenzisa amajelo zentlalo akufani njengokuba umhlobo wokwenene. Kunjalo uYesu umzekelo ogqibeleleyo ukuba kuthetha ntoni ukuba umhlobo wenene. Njengoko uYesu ufundisa, "Umyalelo wam lo: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, ukuba ndibuncama ubomi bakhe abuncamele izihlobo zakhe. "Ubuhlobo ngaphezu udibaniso updates iwonga kunye nemifanekiso. Ubuhlobo lidini.

    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. Tyronimpendulo

    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. Danielaimpendulo

    Wowu! Yinyani leyo. I definitely need to work on my social media intake. It’s very consuming one of the very reasons I stopped getting on Pinterest. Enkosi ngokwabelana.

  4. Staceyimpendulo

    Enkosi kakhulu, obhale le. 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. Inkosi ikusikelele.

  5. uphawuimpendulo

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

  6. Oyishoma Emmanuelimpendulo

    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.

  7. Josephimpendulo

    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!

  9. Rozimpendulo

    Thank you so much for writing this. 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

  10. Adamimpendulo

    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!

  11. Naishaimpendulo

    I saw this link on my Facebook and was dreading to read it because I knew it would convict me and today I said, “Kulungile… Let me have it.” hleka kakhulu. 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.

  12. ChinaJohnsonimpendulo

    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!

  13. Tylerimpendulo

    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!

  17. Mirandaimpendulo

    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.

  18. katimpendulo

    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!

  19. Charityimpendulo

    Wowu. 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.

  20. Yashiraimpendulo

    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.

  21. Mercyimpendulo

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

  22. home decorimpendulo

    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? Enkosi!
