Facebook is something we all use, talk about, or have heard about. But how many of us truly understand the depth of social networking, and the role it can play in within our own lives?
Fact: If Facebook was it’s own country, it would be the third-largest in the world, towering high at 750 million people.
Scattered across the world, millions of people are able to connect with the touch of a button. Not only does Facebook give you the option to post pictures of yourself, but a detailed synopses of your life is able to be shown as well.
1) Your name.
2) Your birthday.
3) Your relationship status.
4) Where you live.
5) Where you work.
6) What languages you speak.
7) Favorite movies.
8) Favorite music.
9) Favorite books.
10) Religious views.
If we get really honest with each other, today’s first impressions are based off twitter, blogs, and Facebook accounts. Rarely do we ever plan to meet someone in person who we haven’t already stalked on Facebook. (with good intentions of course) It may sound funny, but it’s true.
So, with all this being said.
1) What does your Facebook say about you?
2) What do your pictures portray, and your profile convey?
If someone were to take one glance at your pictures, profile or posts; would they see a Loving Christian, or someone selfishly Seeking Attention?
Now don’t get me wrong, everyone has their own opinions, and we might not always come to the same conclusions. But if we truly call ourselves Christians (Christ Followers), wouldn’t we want to take every precaution possible to live up to that name?
At the end of the day. If we aren’t seeking to glorify His name, we’re selfishly trying glorify our own.
