Te āheinga pou i Jessica Barefield
Kia tīmata ahau i te hoatu i te whakakape. e kore ko tenei tuhinga e pā ana ki te pehea pāpāho pāpori kino he. Whakamahia i roto i te whakaōrite, ki te tūranga ngakau tika, taea e te mea he mea whakamiharo. Te mata o tenei tuhinga he ki te tohu i roto i te tahi mau rave'a e taea pāpāho pāpori hei te rua mo te ora Karaitiana, me te ki te faaitoito koe ki te titiro tou ngakau, ina tae mai te reira ki tou kohi pāpāho pāpori me te whai wāhitanga. E rima ara e taea pāpāho pāpori whangai to tatou mau hinaaro hara enei.
1. Ka taea e pāpāho pāpori ururua to koutou wa
he mea kihai i matou i rongo i mua tenei, engari te mea utu tukurua. E faahaamana'ohia tatou i roto i te Ephesia 5:16-17 e he kino nga ra, a kia meinga ia tatou i te whakamahi pai o te wa i homai ki a tatou. A feruri no te te taime ta taea e koe te mahi hei utu i te arowhai aua pae katoa. I tatari i te whakaritea, taea e tatou te pupuri i te rārangi o te iwi ki te inoi mo runga i to tatou waea, me te noho aua meneti anō i roto i te pure no to tatou utuafare, me hoa. tino, i tetahi wa ranei tetahi, Ko katoa tatou hara o fakamoleki haora i runga i Facebook i te ra, me te kore te whakatuwhera ake i te kupu a te Atua. Mai nga taime ko te whakahere i te Ariki, te reira utu tono koe, "He reira te tahi mea whaitake ake e taea e ahau te fakamoleki toku wa i runga i?"Te nuinga o te wā, Ko te whakahoki pea ae.
2. pāpāho pāpori homai he atamira ki tou whakaaro katoa
whakaaro ahau i te mana o te tuku i runga i pāpāho pāpori taea tinihanga koe ki te whakaaro te reira OK ki te tuku e pā ana ki noa tetahi mea. amuamu tatou, tatou Bash ingoamuna iwi, faatura tatou i te taata i roto i te mana, a mea tatou te mea tatou whakaaro e pā ana ki rongonui, me te mea kahore i te iwi tūturu ratou. A whakapono tatou kahore e tatou tino i ki te whakahoki kupu mo tetahi o reira. Kei tinihangatia koutou e te tūmataiti o tou ruma matau i teie nei-i reira ka kia kahore tūmataiti ina tu tatou i mua i te Atua ora, me te hoatu i tētahi pūkete mo tatou kupu. faaara tatou Matthew tino marama, "I te ra o te whakawa, ka hoatu iwi pūkete hoki ratou korero nga kupu pokanoa katoa. "Kia fakamanatu tatou o tenei whakatupato i te wa i muri mai whakahou tatou i to tatou mana.
3. Social media can fuel discontentment
A, no te noho tatou i te taime roa ringihia ki runga ki ta etahi e mahi me te mea, kumea te reira i to tatou whakarongo ki nga mea katoa e kore matou e whai e ngaro i roto i runga i ranei. Ka taea e meinga te reira ia tatou ki te ui ki te aha to tatou oraraa e kore e titiro ki te taua. He aha e kore i ahau i whakaaro o taua faahitiraa? hiahia ahau i ahau tona tikanga o te kāhua. Ko te ara nui atu i tatou to ratou whare hou! Ki te kore e tatou tupato, e toru tekau meneti i runga i Facebook Pinterest ranei e taea te waiho e koe ongo'i huakore, hiamoe, ka underwhelmed ki to koutou ake te ora. ekinaki tatou Hebrews, "Kia mau ki to koutou ora noa i te aroha o te moni, a kia ihirangi ki te mea i a koutou, Kua mea hoki ia, 'E kore ahau e whakarere ia koe, e kore e whakarere ia koe.' "Ka taea e te mutunga hei tatou ihirangi ki to tatou oraraa rite whakapono no te mea kua hoatu e tatou katoa e hiahia ana tatou i roto i te Karaiti. A ui ia outou ahakoa kei te te āwhina tou whakamahi o te pāpāho pāpori koutou whakapono i tenei pono.
4. Social media can fuel pride and keep you inwardly focused
hohoro taea pāpāho pāpori riro to tatou iho malangá mo whakatairanga-whaiaro. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. E rapu ana tatou no te aroha whakamoemiti ranei? Mahi e hiahia ana matou kia pai ki te whakaaro o ranei whakamanamana e pā ana ki te mea ngahau kua kua tatou mahi? E koe tirohia tonu te maha "momo" ranei "retweets" ka tou pou? Katoa o enei mea penehīni ki whakapehapeha me te pupuri i arotahi ia tatou i runga i tatou. taea e te te rua tino pakeke mo te tangata i te tūāpapa e toro tua atu ratou hoa, me te whānau i tēnei. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, no te mea noa e kore e tikanga katoa e haere mai ana ki te ngakau e whakarongo mano o te iwi he utu mea. Me mahara tatou e retweets, kōrero, a kahore e hoatu e aunoa momo whaitake ki ta tatou e tuku. kite te Atua i te hihiri o to tatou aau, a kore e tinihangatia e te pou pai-rawe. Ka rite ki ahau Samuel 2:3 fakatokanga, "Kaua e pupuri i te korero whakahihi ranei kia koutou mangai korero i taua whakapehapeha, mo te Ariki, ko te he Atua e mohio a ka paunatia e ia nga mahi. "
5. Social media can distort our view of relationships
katoa hoki hua pāpāho pāpori kua hoki te whanaungatanga, i reira ko te drawback. Ko reira ngāwari ki te pupuri i ki nga mea aroha koutou ake (pea ngāwari rawa?). Kaua ano i hohonu koutou, kōrero whai hua tangata i roto i? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (pea he tokomaha rawa?). E oversaturated koe ki te kōrero o 300 oraraa o te taata e kore e koe te mahi i te mahi pai o te here i te 10 iwi kite koe wiki ki te wiki? hohoro taea ako'i tatou ia tatou iho ki te hei kiritaki o ngā mōhiohio hei utu o te hunga i aroha o te iwi. e kore ko te taua rite he hoa mau E matau e pā ana ki te ora o te tangata, me te faaiteraa i nga mea katoa e pā ana ki to outou iho oraraa mā pāpāho pāpori. O te akoranga ko Ihu te hi'oraa maitai o te mea te auraa ia riro he hoa pono. Ka rite ki haapii Ihu, "Ko taku ture tenei: Love each other as I have loved you. aroha i rahi kahore tetahi ake i tenei kua, i takoto ia ki raro i tona mate mo ona hoa ". Friendship he nui atu i te moni o whakahōunga mana me ngā pikitia. Friendship he patunga. te amo i te reira mau hopoi'a ia atu o. Ehara i te tika mariko-reira kia sino.
ora Jessica Barefield i Washington D.C. me tana Trip tane, me to ratou Q tama. Ka taea e koe te pānui i atu i a ia i tona rangitaki, Rite ki te aroha.
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. Mauruuru koe mo tenei tuhinga :)
pou nui! 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. Mauruuru no te faaiteraa i.
Nothing short of blessed
Mauruuru koe na nui mō te tuku i tēnei. 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. Whakapaingia te Atua.
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 .
Well mea! I’ve had some of these same thoughts about social media over the past fee years. Keep writing!
aroha ana ahau ki tenei!!!! So so true and I wish more people understood these points!
you’re really inspiration to this generation. Well mea!!!
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….
Mauruuru koe kia nui, 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 !
hiahiatia e ahau tenei!!
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. :) te aroha noa & te rangimarie.
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 .
Mauruuru no te faaiteraa i! 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! Ko te mīharo tenei! Every point hit me and I really needed to hear it. Mauruuru koe kia nui. manaaki te Atua!
Mauruuru koe kia nui hoki te tuhituhi tenei. 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 hoki ahau. One to watch – whakawhetai
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. Te aroha noa me te rangimarie
tuhinga Awesome! Well articulated and balanced. Ngā mihi mō te tiri
Guilty as charged on all 5 points…Mauruuru koe hoki tenei.
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.” 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! Mauruuru koe Jessica!
lol this is so true.. fortunately, i’ve removed my social networking account about 3 tau ki muri :D
That’s real! Got me thinkin!
Mauruuru koe! I’m gonna take a week long break from Facebook, īmēra, 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. Mauruuru koe!
Mauruuru no te tuku i tenei! 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!!! manaaki te Atua.
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. :)
rangitaki Excellent! 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? Mauruuru koe!
