My social media usage would be considered moderate. I enjoy seeing the pictures of my friends & keeping in touch with others. I too, share information & pictures. Social media has created another realm for us to interact. We may forget our Christian influence is seen in the virtual world as well. I’m not the “social media police” but I’m shocked when I see Christians POST or LIKE something that is in opposition to Scripture!
We have the opportunity to influence. Matt. 5:16 says Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. When a friend posts something, we have an opportunity to approve it or contact them privately to show them what Scripture says. When we LIKE something, we are saying the post is okay. What we permit, we promote!
We are the salt of the earth, even on social media. Matt. 5:13-14 says You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. Ideas & values reflected as we type on our keyboard. Salt has purpose, we should fulfill the purpose reflecting Christ and not the world.
Our social media friends see our fruit. Matt. 12:33 says Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. People are impacted by what they see, what they read and what you LIKE!
Don’t allow the virtual world to limit your influence!
