Being Salt and Light in Social Media
I think we would all agree that the influence of social media has the power to adversely change people. One article points out that the use of social media can lead to depression and anxiety, cyberbullying, the “fear of missing out” (FOMO), unrealistic expectation, negative body image, unhealthy sleep patterns, and general addiction. While these are all things we need to be concerned about, there is also much good that can come from social media. It has so much to do with how we use our social media accounts to spread light in darkness. Kyle Idleman has done a wonderful study called Redeem the Screen that I would encourage you to review. You can see the three-part series from Southeast Christian Church here or a study with teaching resources at RightNow Media here (subscription required).
To help you shine a light in your social media channels, we have a number of shareables about worship that you can use. I would encourage you to find other sources for graphics to add as well as simply sharing good news that you glean from God’s Word.
Here is one site with lots of images for your use (free subscription).
This blog has a listing of 144 verses of praise. While they are not graphics, you could begin each day posting one of those to encourage others to focus on God.
Let’s make a difference in this world through a medium that allows us to reach most of the world.
