We live in a generation where social media is taking over our life. When we wake up in the morning instead of having a quiet time with the Lord by reading His word, praying and meditation, we grabbed our phone and go straight to our social accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc to check the
latest gossip and news. Some will take morning selfies, afternoon selfies and goodnight selfies.It depends on the mood. I believe that there are advantages and disadvantages. That’s how the generation now, what to do? What to do? Well we can’t do anything but my answer is.. Let’s get social!
We can still balance it. You can be active on your social network accounts but remember to take time with your love ones. Have a social life literally. When you go out with your friends, try not to spend a lot of time on your phone. Have a good and deep conversation with your friends, laugh or if needed cry with them. If you want to take selfie or groufie HAHA, take one or two but never spend the entire time taking pictures and you would not able to have some quality time with your friends or love ones, better post it on you social media accounts when you get home. So all your attention is with them.
Lets get social! You can post on your timeline , it’s okay. We are free to say whatever its in our hearts but take your time to message your close friends as well. I appreciate likes on my photos or posts but when a friend exert effort to inbox me to ask how am I doing, I am loving that. I feel loved. We liked our Facebook friends images but let us like them too. There are people who only add people on their list because they want to just know what’s going in their lives and when they see something on their wall, they started to gossip about it. Let us be real friends, chat with them, be friendly but not flirting to opposite gender (especially when you are already taken, engaged or married) Also, when someone is posting about his/her success, let us be happy about it and for them. Remove any jealousy and insecurities in your heart. They are not helpful.
Social media can be very helpful to us for important news around the world but it can also be a distraction to us. It is up to us if we let it take over our lives. Be on guard. If it takes more of your time and you are not being productive, take a break from social media. Life can still go on with or without it. Let’s socialize to our family, friends. Do not let your phones, tablet or any website rule you and ruin your relationships. Balance it. 🙂
Let us be a generation who seek God first before social media. Read your Bible not only posts or tweets. Do not only share verses on your timeline, websites, have time to meditate on it and apply in your life. Exercise kindness, humility and love online or offline. Let’s get social!
Take a selfie! Smile, not only on your selfie but to everyone you see. Be a blessing today! 🙂
