Wọnyi ni o wa marun ona ti awujo media le ifunni wa elese ipongbe.

1. Social media le egbin rẹ akoko

Eleyi jẹ ohunkohun ti a ti ko gbọ ṣaaju ki o to, sugbon o tọ tun. A ti wa ni leti ni Efesu 5:16-17 wipe awọn ọjọ ni o wa buburu ati awọn ti a yẹ ki o ṣe ti o dara ju lilo ti awọn akoko fifun wa. Ro fun akoko kan ohun ti o le wa ni ṣe dipo ti yiyewo gbogbo awon ojula. Nigba ti nduro ni ipinnu lati pade, a le pa a akojọ ti awọn eniyan lati gbadura fun wa lori foonu ati ki o na awon afikun iṣẹju ni adura fun wa ebi ati awọn ọrẹ. esan, ni akoko kan tabi miiran, a wa ni gbogbo jẹbi lilo wakati lori Facebook ni ọjọ kan ati ki o ko nsii soke ni Ọrọ Ọlọrun. Niwon gbogbo akoko ti wa ni a ebun lati OLUWA, o tọ béèrè ara, "Se nkankan siwaju sii dara ti mo ti le wa ni lilo mi akoko lori?"Ọpọlọpọ ninu awọn akoko, idahun si jẹ jasi bẹẹni.

2. Social media yoo fun a Syeed si rẹ gbogbo ero

Mo ro pe ni solidarity ti ìrú lori awujo media le tan ti o si rò o ni dara lati fí kan nipa ohunkohun. a kerora, a anonymously bu eniyan, a disrespect eniyan ni aṣẹ, ati awọn ti a sọ ohunkohun ti a ro nipa osere, bi o ba ti nwọn wà ko gidi eniyan. Ati awọn ti a gbagbo a ko gan ni lati dahun fun eyikeyi ti o. Ma wa ko le ele nipa awọn ìpamọ ti rẹ yara ọtun bayi-nibẹ ni yio je ohunkohun ikọkọ nigba ti a ba duro niwaju Ọlọrun alãye ki o si fun ohun iroyin fun wa ọrọ.

3. Social media can fuel discontentment

Nigba ti a ba na gbooro sii akoko pouring lori ohun ti awọn miran ti wa ni n ki o si wipe, ti o fa wa ifojusi si gbogbo awọn ohun ti a ko ni tabi ti wa ni sonu jade lori. O le fa wa lati Ìbéèrè idi ti aye wa ko ba wo kanna. Ẽṣe ti kò Mo ro ti ti ń? Mo fẹ Mo ní rẹ ori ti ara. Won titun ile ni ona tobi ju tiwa!

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

Social media le ni kiakia di ara wa podium fun ara-igbega. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Ti wa ni a ti nwa fun anu tabi iyìn? Ṣe a fẹ lati wa ni daradara ro ti tabi fọnnu nípa àwọn fun ohun ti a ti sọ a ti n ṣe? Ṣe o nigbagbogbo ṣayẹwo bi ọpọlọpọ "fẹran" tabi "retweets" rẹ post ni? Gbogbo nkan wọnyi idana igberaga ki o si pa wa lojutu lori ara. Eleyi le je kan paapa lile pitfall fun ẹnikẹni ti o ni a Syeed ti o pan kọja wọn awọn ọrẹ ati ebi. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, o kan nitori egbegberun eniyan ti wa ni gbigbọ ko ko tunmọ si ohun gbogbo ti o ba de si okan jẹ tọ pe. A gbọdọ ranti wipe retweets, comments, ati awọn fẹran ma ko laifọwọyi fun legitimacy si ohun ti a fí. Olorun ri awọn iwuri ti ọkàn wa ati ki o ni ko ele nipa a daradara-tiase post. Bi mo ti Samuel 2:3 cautions, "Má pa sọrọ ki inu didun tabi jẹ ki ẹnu rẹ sọ iru iyaju, nitori Oluwa ni a Olorun ti o mo nipa Re iṣẹ ti wa ni ti ni oṣuwọn. "

5. Social media can distort our view of relationships

Fun gbogbo anfani awujo media ni o ni fun awọn ibasepo, nibẹ ni a drawback. O jẹ rorun lati pa soke pẹlu awọn àwọn ti o ni ife (boya ju rorun?). Ṣe o si tun ni jin, o nilari awọn ibaraẹnisọrọ ni eniyan? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (boya ju ọpọlọpọ awọn?). Ti wa ni o oversaturated pẹlu awọn alaye ti 300 eniyan aye ti o ba ko n kan ti o dara ise ti ife awọn 10 eniyan ti o ri ọsẹ to ọsẹ? A le ni kiakia irin ara wa lati wa ni awọn onibara ti alaye dipo ti awọn ololufẹ ti awọn eniyan. Mọ nipa ẹnikan ká aye ati pínpín ohun gbogbo nipa ti ara rẹ aye nipasẹ awujo media jẹ ko kanna bi jije a gidi ore. Dajudaju Jesu ni pipe apẹẹrẹ ti ohun ti o tumo si lati wa ni a otito ọrẹ. Bi Jesu kqni, "Mi aṣẹ ni yi: Love each other as I have loved you. Ife ti o tobi ko si ọkan ju yi, ti o si dubulẹ aye re fun awọn ọrẹ rẹ. "Ore jẹ diẹ sii ju iye ipo awọn imudojuiwọn ati awọn aworan. Ore ni ẹbọ. O ti n ti nso kọọkan miiran ká ẹrù. O ni ko kan foju-o gbodo je ojulowo.

    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. O ṣeun fun yi article :)

  2. Tyronfesi

    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. Danielafesi

    Iro ohun! 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. O ṣeun fun pínpín.

  4. Staceyfesi

    O ṣeun ki Elo fun ìrú yi. 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. Ibukun Ọlọrun.

  5. Eulaivi Clutariofesi

    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. kasewefesi

    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. Calebfesi

    daradara si wi! I’ve had some of these same thoughts about social media over the past fee years. Keep writing!

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

  9. Angelafesi

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

    ibukun!

    mo dupe lowo yin lopolopo, for thelittle peoplewith out a voice it speaks numbers to think oursocialvalue is derived from social media. Thanks for the wake up call !

  11. Oyishoma Emmanuelfesi

    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.

  12. ADIN MOOREfesi

    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 & alafia.

    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)

  14. Barbarafesi

    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!

  15. Priscillafesi

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

  16. Christinefesi

    O ṣeun fun pínpín! Excellent reminders of how we should caution ourselves when it comes to social media.

  17. Susanfesi

    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.

  18. Christafesi

    Iro ohun! Eleyi jẹ iyanu! Every point hit me and I really needed to hear it. mo dupe lowo yin lopolopo. ibukun Ọlọrun!

  19. Rozfesi

    O ṣeun ki Elo fun kikọ yi. 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

  20. Clement Magombofesi

    God bless you for sharing this. I need to be pure and thoughtful in whatever I do online/offline. Ore-ọfẹ ati alafia

  21. Adamfesi

    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!

  22. Naishafesi

    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.

  23. ChinaJohnsonfesi

    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! O ṣeun Jessica!

  24. Aaronfesi

    lol this is so true.. fortunately, i’ve removed my social networking account about 3 awọn ọdun sẹyin :D

  25. RJfesi

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

  26. Tylerfesi

    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.

  31. Keinyafesi

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

  32. Marjoriefesi

    O ṣeun fun ìrú yi! I’m so glad God led me to your blog today because I definitely needed to read this!

  33. Jerdonfesi

    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!!! ibukun Ọlọrun.

  34. katfesi

    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!

  35. Charityfesi

    Iro ohun. 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.

  36. Yashirafesi

    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.

  37. Mercyfesi

    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. :)

  38. home decorfesi

    o tayọ bulọọgi! 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? e dupe!
