7 Questions for Facebook Users

Everything in life is either a tool or an idol. As we move toward a new year, I’m assessing several areas of my life that I see can easily become idols in our time and culture. One of course being Social Media. I found these seven questions by Steven Cornell helpful in assessing my time on social media. Read the entire post here.

  1. Do you check your Facebook status in the morning before checking in with God?
  2. Are you disappointed when people don’t respond to your posts?
  3. Do you waste too much time on Facebook?
  4. Do you use Facebook to avoid real life contact?
  5. Do you have intimate conversations with the opposite sex under the guise of counseling?
  6. Do you use Facebook to complain about life or people?
  7. Are you always truthful and loving in the things you post?

Also, Seven Scriptures to apply:

  1. “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer” (Psalm 19:14).
  2. “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
  3. “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (I corinthians 10:31).
  4. “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves (Philippians 2:3).
  5. “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe” (Philippians 2:14-15).
  6. “Too much talk leads to sin. Be sensible and keep your mouth shut” (Proverbs 10:19, NLT). “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” (James 1:19)
  7. “Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you; reprove a wise man, and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning” (Proverbs 9:8-9).
