Facebook Is Not A Dumping Ground


Emily Miller

You come across it all too often. A post on Facebook that you really struggle with agreeing with.

It may be something that infuriates you, as it is a post on something that defies your deeply held core values.

It may sadden you, as you grieve over where the world is headed based on all the negativity you see.

You may find yourself comparing your life to the life of the people you supposedly care about and love. This quickly can spiral down into depression as you think there is no possible way your life could ever be as good as your friends online.

If Facebook has gotten you into any one of the above feelings to the point where you may have posted something less than flattering in response, it is time to stop.

Let's put down our phones and step away from the laptops, ladies, and start to re-evaluate Facebook.

Instead of it being the dumping ground we tend to make it, why don't we use it as a place of ministry? We are supposed to be the light of Christin everything we do. What would happen if we started to use Facebook to uplift others, even if we don't agree with their opinions?

When it comes to using this method, it can be helpful to remember the following verse.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.
-Philippians 4:8

  1. Absolutely! All connectivity offers ministry opportunities. We need only pray and go toward God. I generally make notes ain color notes as when wanting to respond. Time tends to offer better perspective and often I post nothing. Posts tend to lean positive afterwards.
