Social Media VS the Great Commission

When it comes to reading social media, it seems everyone has a cynical opinion of others,

“PLEASE STOP! I hate seeing pictures of your children.”
“I really don’t care what you did last weekend…”
“Stop posting memes and spam already!”
“Another selfie? Is there a legal limit on those?”
“Stop taking pictures of your food!”
“I‘m canceling my Facebook account, I’m going off the grid.”
“I don’t want to see pictures of your European vacation…”
“I hate seeing everyone’s perfect lives.”

What are we posting?

“How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” -John 5:44 ESV

We share what we LOVE

A meal soooo good you must simply let others know, a beautiful sunset that must be shared, a breaking news story that will change your outlook, a funny photo that will make you LOL, a sad story about suffering or injustice that needs attention, a song that you simply find amazing, a new movie trailer, or an awesome quote from history?

We love to share what we love! It just comes natural.

So, what do we love?

“The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” -Luke 6:45 ESV

Consider “Rescuer” by Chris McClarney

“Hearts that know mercy
cannot stay silent …”

What a profound observation!
We sing this song all the time, but can we honestly claim something like that for ourselves?

Closing Thoughts

What kind of impact would someone like Paul have with social media?

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” -Mathew 5:16 ESV
