These questions have left me wondering the benefits of social networking. Why do I take the time, sometimes wasting my time, to look through the pages of people who have called me their friend? Can I use it for the glory of God? Does it benefit others? Does it further the kingdom of God?
My point with this post is not to determine what I will do with my blog, facebook, twitter, gmail, etc.but to remind myself everyday who I am pleasing, living my life to the glory of God, loving my neighbor as myself, learning to apply Scripture to everyday living.
The recent messages on Sunday morning continue in the book of Romans. This past week the message from His Word was Romans 12:14-21, excellent message by the way.
I am taking to heart verse 9 and 18:
"Let love be genuine...
If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all."
I want my love to be genuine, abhoring what is evil, holding fast to what is good. I want to outdo in showing honor.(Romans 12:9,10)
Never perfectly but always praying the beauty of Jesus will be seen in me. If that means being 'defriended', just another opportunity to be transparent and authentic in love.
