Let me ask you a question. One you might not like. What is in your feed? Which pictures fill your Instagram? How many posts on Facebook lift you instead of bring you down? Do the tweets you read inspire? I noticed the more friends I accepted, and the more acquaintances I followed, the worse my mood would be after I logged off. While generations past did not have social media, they did have many distractions. In this letter to the church, Paul urges the Christians to fill their hearts and minds with the positive.
Let’s be real, there are so many areas where negativity can creep into our lives. Social media can be used in amazing ways to spread the Gospel to more places and quicker than ever before. A timely post could lift your spirits and boost your day. But, it can also be an area Satan can use to grab your attention away from God.
Go through your accounts today and decide what brings Glory to God and what doesn’t. Take control of what you see and read. Think about the content that others post and decide if that helps your day or hurts it. You will be surprised how different you feel when you fill your thoughts with what is right and pure.
