Gost post od Jessica Barefield
Dozvolite mi da počnem tako što će disclaimer. Ovaj članak se ne radi o tome kako zlo društvenim medijima. Koristi se u moderiranje, sa desnog srca držanje, to može biti divna stvar. Poenta ovog članka je ukazati na neke načine da društveni mediji mogu biti zamku za hrišćanski život i da vas ohrabrim da ispitaju svoje srce kada je u pitanju vaše društvene potrošnje medija i sudjelovanje. To su pet načina da društveni mediji mogu hraniti naše grešne želje.
1. Društveni mediji mogu gubiti vrijeme
Ovo je ništa nismo čuli ranije, ali to je vrijedno ponavljanja. Mi se podsetio u Efežanima 5:16-17 da su dani su zli, a mi treba da na najbolji način iskoristiti vrijeme koje nam. Razmislite na trenutak ono što se može raditi umjesto provjere svih tih lokacija. Dok se čeka na termin, bismo mogli voditi spisak ljudi da se mole na našem telefonu i provesti te dodatnih minuta u molitvi za naše obitelji i prijateljima. sigurno, u nekom trenutku, svi smo mi krivi za vrijeme proveli na Facebook-u dan i nikada ne otvara Reč Boga. Pošto svaki trenutak je dar od Gospoda, vredi pitate, "Ima li još nešto korisno da sam mogao provoditi svoje vrijeme na?" Većinu vremena, odgovor je vjerojatno da.
2. Društveni mediji daje platformu za sve vaše misli
Mislim da je solidarnost postavljanje na društvenim mrežama možete prevariti u misleći da je u redu da postavite bilo šta. mi se žale, mi anonimno udarila ljudi, mi ne poštuju ljudi u vlasti, i kažemo sve što mislimo o poznatim ličnostima, kao da oni nisu bili pravi ljudi. I vjerujemo da zaista ne morate odgovoriti na bilo koji od toga. Nemojte da vas zavara privatnost svoju sobu odmah-neće biti ništa privatno kada stojimo pred živoga Boga i dati nalog za naše riječi. Matthew nas upozorava prilično jasno, "Na dan presude, ljudi će dati nalog za svaki neoprezan riječ govore. "Neka nam se podsjetio ovog upozorenja sledeći put ćemo ažurirati svoj status.
3. Social media can fuel discontentment
Kada smo provesti duže vrijeme sipa nad onim što drugi rade i govore, skreće našu pažnju na sve stvari koje nemaju ili su propustili na. To nas može izazvati na pitanje zašto je naš život ne izgledaju isto. Zašto ne mislim na taj citat? Ja bih imao sam je osjećaj za stil. Njihova nova kuća je način veći od našeg! Ako nismo pažljivi, trideset minuta na Facebooku ili Pinterest može ostaviti osjećaj neproduktivnog, neatraktivan, i Underwhelmed sa svojim životom. Jevrejima nas preklinje, "Držite život bez ljubavi novca, i biti zadovoljan s onim što imaš, jer On je rekao, "Ja nikada neće ostaviti niti ostaviti vas." "Ne možemo na kraju biti zadovoljni našim životima kao vjernici jer smo dali sve što nam je potrebno u Kristu. Zapitajte se da li vaše korištenje društvenih medija pomaže mislite da ovo istina.
4. Social media can fuel pride and keep you inwardly focused
Društveni mediji mogu brzo postati vlastite podijum za samopromociju. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Tražimo simpatije ili pohvalu? Da li želimo da se dobro misli ili hvalim zabava stvari koje smo radili? Da li stalno provjeriti koliko "lajkova" ili "retweet" svoj post dobio? Sve ove stvari goriva ponos i držati nas fokusiran na sebe. To može biti posebno teško zamku za svakoga ko ima platformu koja se proteže izvan njihovih prijatelja i porodice. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, samo zato što tisuće ljudi slušaju ne znači sve što mi pada na pamet je vrijedno rekavši. Moramo zapamtiti da retweets, komentari, i sviđa automatski ne daju legitimitet onome što post. Bog vidi motivaciju našim srcima i nikada nije prevario strane dobro napravljen post. Kao što sam Samuel 2:3 upozorenja, "Nemoj da pričaš tako ponosno ili neka usta govore takve arogancije, za Gospod je Bog koji zna i od Njega djela su teška. "
5. Social media can distort our view of relationships
Za svaki koristi društvene medije ima za odnose, postoji nedostatak. To je lako držati korak s onima koje volite (možda previše lako?). Da li i dalje imaju duboke, smislene razgovore u lice? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (možda previše?). Da li prezasićen sa detaljima 300 živote ljudi koji ne radiš dobar posao voljenja 10 ljudi vidite nedelje u nedelju? Možemo brzo trenirati sebe da bi potrošači informacija umjesto ljubitelja ljudi. Znajući o nečiji život i dijeljenje sve o svom životu putem društvenih medija nije isto što i biti pravi prijatelj. Naravno, Isus je savršen primjer onoga što znači biti pravi prijatelj. Kao što je Isus uči, "Moja komanda je ovo: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, da položi svoj život za svoje prijatelje. "Prijateljstvo je više od zbira ažuriranja statusa i slike. Prijateljstvo je žrtva. To je imajući međusobno opterećenja. To nije samo virtualnih mora biti opipljiv.

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 :)
great post! Really made me think and consider my social media usage!
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.
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. Hvala za dijeljenje.
Nothing short of blessed
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. Nazdravlje.
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 .
Dobro rečeno! I’ve had some of these same thoughts about social media over the past fee years. Keep writing!
Volim ovo!!!! So so true and I wish more people understood these points!
you’re really inspiration to this generation. Dobro rečeno!!!
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.
fenomenalan…. Glory to God alone….
Thank you so much, for the “little people” with out a voice it speaks numbers to think our “social” value is derived from social media. Thanks for the wake up call !
Trebalo mi je ovo!!
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. :) milost & Mir.
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 Facebook” by Shane Hipps (Second Nature Journal dot com)
Very thought provoking!
wow, great post, I am really blessed.
Omg I was so convicted last week by exactly what you said …spending hours on facebook that should be spending in the word! I love this blog…keep the knowledge coming!
I like your balanced position; not completely condemning social media, yet pointing out the issues/tendency for sinfulness. Reminds me of iLove.
Good points..thanks for sharing I needed it .
Hvala za dijeljenje! Excellent reminders of how we should caution ourselves when it comes to social media.
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.
Great write up! Thought provoking for sure…note to self!
wow! This is amazing! Every point hit me and I really needed to hear it. Thank you so much. nazdravlje!
Hvala vam puno za pisanje ovog. 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
Spot on with number 4 za mene. One to watch – hvala
Thanks for writing this article; this article was edifying.
God bless you for sharing this. I need to be pure and thoughtful in whatever I do online/offline. Grace i mir
awesome članak! Well articulated and balanced. Hvala na dijeljenju
Guilty as charged on all 5 points…Hvala vam na ovom.
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!
I saw this link on my Facebook and was dreading to read it because I knew it would convict me and today I said, “Uredu… 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!
lol this is so true.. fortunately, i’ve removed my social networking account about 3 prije mnogo godina :D
That’s real! Got me thinkin!
Hvala ti! I’m gonna take a week long break from Facebook, E-mail, and Instagram and work on those relationships I have with people I see in my daily life.
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.
wow. This really spoke to me and I appreciate it. It’s so well articulated and has some great advice on ways to reflect. Hvala ti!
Hvala vam za postavljanje ovaj! I’m so glad God led me to your blog today because I definitely needed to read this!
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!!! nazdravlje.
this just gave me more insight that i thought i had
Trip and his family are pure blessings.
That happens sometimes doesn’t it ????
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
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!
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.
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.
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. :)
odličan 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? Hvala ti!
