Social Media Envy!

Sin - exceedingly sinful
Anyone currently active on social media knows that Godinterest is slowly developing into an incredible phenomena. Idea sharing and photo sharing combined in the ultimate setting of graphic after graphic, interests and likes can be decided and shared in two clicks or less. There hasn’t been a day before now where the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words” is more true.
Can we just tell you that there are a ton of posts on Godinterest that fall under the categories listed above?   And that is why people love it! But we do need to check ourselves from time to time as there is a danger that we just might be forming the wrong thought pattern about certain things, thereby transforming them into sin.

“If You Are a Christian Who Seeks God with Your Whole Heart, You Are a Target.”

Instead of playing the comparing game on social media, what if we stick to the guideline of God’s Word? Let’s seek recipes, means of hospitality, and all sorts of ideas and content, yet be sure that we do so without envy and with our identity firmly planted in #Christ.

“We Live in a Time of Great Stress, When Trials Can Come upon Us Suddenly and Leave Us Overwhelmed, Weary and Confused.”

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in #Christ Jesus – Philippians 2:4
Has Facebook, Twitter or other social media ever made you feel inadequate or envious? We would love to read your thoughts about this topic!

We’ve included ten of the most voted photos posted on#Godinterest so far in 2015.

 

“God wants full custody, not just weekend visits.”

“You Call It Religion, I Call It a Relationship.”

“I AM THE DAUGHTER OF A KING WHO IS NOT MOVED BY THE WORLD, FOR MY GOD IS WITH ME & GOES BEFORE ME, I DO NOT FEAR BECAUSE I AM.”

“Don’t Forget to Give It to God in Prayer.”

“Seek First the Kingdom of God. But Jesus Said, Suffer Little Children, and Forbid Them Not, to Come unto Me: For of Such Is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

“I’m Not Alone. God Is Always with Me… We Are at War! Satan the Devil Hates Us and Wants to Destroy Us. We Must Be Aware of Our Enemy’s Weapons and Tactics, Because Our Spiritual Life Depends on It.”

“Don’t Shine SO OTHERS CAN SEE YOU, SHINE SO THAT Through YOU, OTHER CAN SEE Him… One of Satan’s Strongest Weapons Is Pride. Pride Is Always a Danger, Especially When Things Are Going Well, Such as in Times of Peace and Prosperity (Deuteronomy 8:11-17)”

“Make the Water Stop? Or Thank You, Lord for Loving Me, I Welcome You in My Heart.”

“I Want to Be Do Full of #Christ That If a Mosquito Bites Me It Flies Away Singing There Is Power in the Blood!”

“Nothing Is More Impressive That a Person Who Is Secure in the Unique Way God Made Her.”

Godinterest continues to withstand attacks by hackers and censors as the media outlet expands. A hacking attack which took place over the weekend inflicted superficial damage which was quickly repaired. Hackers remain unable to penetrate the site’s security, but the unwanted attention shows that the evil is hard at work.

  1. Thanks for this. I’ve just started blogging and am finding it way to easy to get caught up in growing my page rather than glorifying God, which was the whole point of creating this blog in the first place, gah!
