Guest lahatsoratra avy Jessica Barefield
Mamelà ahy ianareo hanomboka amin'ny alalan'ny fanomezana ny Disclaimer. Ity lahatsoratra ity dia tsy mikasika ny haino aman-jery sosialy ny ratsy dia. Nampiasaina araka ny antonony, po tsara amin'ny fihetsika, dia afaka ny ho zavatra mahafinaritra. Ny teboka lahatsoratra ity dia ny hanondro fomba sasany izay haino aman-jery ara-tsosialy mety ho fandrika ho an'ny fiainana kristianina sy ny mampirisika anao mba handinika ny fonao rehefa tonga ao an-haino aman-jery sosialy sy ny fandraisana anjara fanjifana. Ireo no fomba dimy izay haino aman-jery sosialy manome sakafo ny faniriana feno fahotana.
1. Haino aman-jery ara-tsosialy dia afaka mandany fotoana
Izany no na inona na inona izahay ary tsy naheno teo anatrehan'i, saingy mendrika ny mamerina. Nampahatsiahy isika ao amin'ny Efesiana 5:16-17 fa ratsy izao andro izao, ary tokony hanao ny tsara indrindra mampiasa ny fotoana nomena antsika. Eritrereto mandritra ny fotoana fohy izay mety ho manao fa tsy mijery ireo toerana rehetra. Teo am-piandrasana amin'ny fotoana, afaka foana ny lisitry ny olona mba hivavaka ho eo amin'ny telefaonina sy handany ireo minitra fanampiny amin'ny vavaka ho an'ny fianakaviany sy ny namany. tokoa, nisy fotoana, na hafa, isika rehetra meloka ny mandany ora tao amin'ny Facebook tamin'ny andro ary tsy eo am-piandohan'ny ny Tenin'Andriamanitra. Koa satria fotoana rehetra dia fanomezana avy amin'ny Tompo, izany Mila Dinihina ny tenanao, "Misy zavatra mendrika kokoa fa ho afaka handany ny fotoanako amin'ny?" Matetika, ny valiny dia Eny angamba.
2. Haino aman-jery sosialy manome sehatra ny hevitra rehetra
Mino aho fa ny firaisan-kina ny famoahana amin'ny media sosialy Afaka mamitaka anareo ho mieritreritra tsy maninona ny mamoaka fotsiny momba ny na inona na inona. Tsy mitaraina, bash ny olona izahay, tsy fantatra anarana, isika tsy manaja ny olona manam-pahefana, ary milaza na inona na inona ny mieritreritra momba ny olo-malaza, toy ny raha tsy tena olona. Ary izahay mino ny tsy maintsy mamaly na inona na inona izany. Aza tsy ho voafitaka noho ny fiainana manokana ny trano amin'izao fotoana izao-tsy hisy na inona na inona tsy miankina rehefa hitoetra eto anatrehan'ny Andriamanitra velona, ka omeo ny tantara ho an'ny teny. Matio Mampitandrina antsika mazava tsara tarehy, "Ary tamin'ny andro fitsarana, ny olona dia hampamoahina noho ny teny rehetra izay mitoetra tsy miteny izy ireo. "Aoka isika hampahatsiahivina ny amin'izany ireo fampitandremana amin'ny manaraka isika ny sata vaovao farany.
3. Social media can fuel discontentment
Rehefa mandany fotoana maharitra sady nasiany noho izay hafa manao ary nanao hoe:, dia mitaona ny saintsika rehetra ny zavatra tsy manana, na dia tsy hita avy eo. Mety hahatonga antsika mba hanontany ny antony ny fiainantsika tsy mijery mitovy. Nahoana no tsy mieritreritra izay notsongaina? Maniry dia nanana ny heviny ny fomba. Ny tranony dia lalana vaovao lehibe noho ny antsika! Raha tsy mitandrina isika, telo-polo minitra ao amin'ny Facebook na Pinterest afaka hamela anao hahatsapa ho tsy mamokatra, tarehy, ary dia misongadina amin'ny fiainanao manokana. Hebreo Mampirisika antsika, "Aoka ny fiainanao afaka amin'ny fitiavam-bola, ary ho afa-po amin'ny izay anananao, fa hoy Izy hoe:, 'Izaho tsy handao anao na hahafoy anao.' "Afaka ho afa-po amin'ny farany ny fiainantsika toy ny mpino satria Omena izay rehetra ilaintsika ao amin'i Kristy. Manontania tena na ny fampiasana ny haino aman-jery sosialy dia manampy anao mino izany fahamarinana izany.
4. Social media can fuel pride and keep you inwardly focused
Haino aman-jery ara-tsosialy dia afaka avy hatrany ho antsika manokana lampihazo ho an'ny tena-fisondrotana. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Moa ve isika mitady fiaraha-miory, na fiderana? Moa ve isika te-ho tsara na nieritreritra ny mirehareha momba ny zavatra mahafinaritra Efa manao? Foana ve ianao hijery hoe firy ny "tiany" na "retweets" ny lahatsoratra nahazo? Rehetra izany solika ny avonavona sy hitandrina antsika hifantoka amin'ny tenantsika. Izany dia mety ho tena sarotra ho an'ny olona fandrika izay manana sehatra izay miitatra mihoatra noho ny namana sy ny fianakaviana. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, satria an'arivony ny olona mihaino dia tsy zava-dehibe izay tonga ao an-tsaina mendrika nanao hoe:. Tsy maintsy tsaroantsika fa retweets, fanehoan-kevitra, ary tiany tsy tonga dia manome ara-drariny ny zavatra mandefa. Andriamanitra dia mahita ny antony manosika ny fontsika ary tsy voafitaky ny lavaka fantsakana-namolavola tamin-kafetsena lahatsoratra. Araka ny I Samuel 2:3 fampitandremana, "Aza tsy mitandrina ny miresaka izany tamim-pireharehana, na aoka ny vavanao miteny toy izany fiavonavonana, fa ny Tompo no Andriamanitra izay mahafantatra sy ny Aminy no mandanja ny asa. "
5. Social media can distort our view of relationships
Fa folaka avokoa ny haino aman-jery ara-tsosialy dia manana soa ho an'ny fifandraisana, misy ny hantsana lalina manjaka. Mora ny haharaka ny olona tianao (Angamba mora loatra?). Moa ve ianao mbola lalina, manan-danja resaka mivantana? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (Angamba maro?). Ianao oversaturated amin'ny antsipiriany ny 300 ny fiainan'ny olona fa ianao tsy manao asa tsara ny tia ny 10 olona hitanao isan-kerinandro? Afaka mampiofana haingana ny tenantsika mba ho mpanjifa ny vaovao fa tsy tia ny olona. Fahafantarana momba ny fiainan'ny olona iray sy ny fizarana ny zava-drehetra momba ny fiainanao manokana amin'ny alalan'ny haino aman-jery sosialy Tsy mitovy ho toy ny tena namana. Mazava ho azy fa i Jesosy no ohatra tonga lafatra ny dikan'ny hoe ho tena namana. I Jesosy dia mampianatra, "Ny didy ity: Love each other as I have loved you. Manana fitiavana lehibe noho izao tsy misy olona, dia ny manolotra ny ainy hamonjy ny sakaizany. "fisakaizana dia mihoatra lavitra noho ny isan'ny toerana fanavaozam-baovao sy ny sary. Ny fisakaizana dia sorona. Izany dia midika hoe mitondra ny enta-mavesatra samy hafa. Tsy fotsiny virtoaly-tsy maintsy ho azo tsapain-tanana.
Jessica Barefield Mipetraka any Washington D.C. miaraka amin'ny vadiny Trip, ary ny zanany Q. Azonao atao ny mamaky bebe kokoa avy aminy ao amin'ny bilaoginy, Te ho tia.
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. Misaotra anareo ity lahatsoratra ity :)
Great lahatsoratra! 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! Marina loatra. I definitely need to work on my social media intake. It’s very consuming one of the very reasons I stopped getting on Pinterest. Misaotra anao nizara.
Nothing short of blessed
Misaotra betsaka noho ny famoahana izany. 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. TAHIN'ANDRIAMANITRA.
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 .
marina izay nolazainao! I’ve had some of these same thoughts about social media over the past fee years. Keep writing!
tiako ity!!!! So so true and I wish more people understood these points!
you’re really inspiration to this generation. marina izay nolazainao!!!
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.
Awesome…. Glory to God alone….
Misaotra anao indrindra, 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 !
I nila izany!!
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 & 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 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 .
Misaotra anao nizara! 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! Izany no mahagaga! Every point hit me and I really needed to hear it. Misaotra anao indrindra. TAHIN'ANDRIAMANITRA!
Misaotra betsaka noho ny fanoratana izany. 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 ho ahy. One to watch – thanks
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. Anie ny fahasoavana sy ny fiadanana
Awesome lahatsoratra! Well articulated and balanced. Misaotra ny fizarana
Guilty as charged on all 5 points…Misaotra noho izany.
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, “Ok… Let me have it.” tpt. 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! Misaotra anao Jessica!
lol this is so true.. fortunately, i’ve removed my social networking account about 3 taona maro lasa izay :D
That’s real! Got me thinkin!
Misaotra anao! 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.
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. Misaotra anao!
Misaotra anao noho ny famoahana izany! 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!!! TAHIN'ANDRIAMANITRA.
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. Tpt
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 bilaogy! 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? Misaotra anao!
