This place can truly be a tool of the enemy. A platform for lies. A temptation for idolatry. A doorway to discouragement. . But I was reminded earlier this week how it can also be: A vessel of His light. A billboard for His truth. An invitation to adoration. An opportunity to encourage. . Social media is just another place for Jesus to shine through you - be a city on a hill here. πŸ’‘ Be the one who sends a DM thanking someone for their encouraging post or vulnerable words. πŸ’ πŸ’‘ LOL. No, seriously. Laugh- out loud. And comment (πŸ˜‚). Even a shared sense of humor makes this a less isolating place. πŸ’‘If scrolling or surfing tempts you to compare, complain, criticize or crawl into a dark hole, cut off your index finger Γ  la Matthew 5: 19. Or for a less extreme option: cut out social media for a bit. βœ‚οΈ . Be the person on social media that Christ calls you to be in the world: πŸ€” a serial liker with unlimited stores of love to lavish ❀️ πŸ€” an encourager + a cheerleader πŸ“£ . πŸ€” a servant + a steward πŸ’ͺ🏻 . Be more πŸ™ŒπŸ» and less πŸ’©. Be more πŸ˜‡ and less πŸ‘Ώ. Be more πŸ‘πŸ» and less πŸ‘ŽπŸ». Be more β˜€οΈ and less πŸ’§. Be more πŸ€— and less πŸ™„. ----------------------------------------------------------- [Matthew 5: 14-16] You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. ----------------------------------------------------------- πŸ“·πŸŽ¨: @willowlief #artforthesoul #artwithheart #artcollective . . . . .
