On social media, it’s better to build people up than to tear them down.
One of the best things about social media is that it gives us an instant way to communicate. Think about it! When something major happens in the world, not only can you find out about it right away, but you can also start talk about it as soon as you do! Thanks to social media, you can say anything to anyone at anytime you want. While that is pretty cool, sometimes communicating through social media can cause us to forget that there are actual people on the other side of our screens. And when we forget those other people, we also forget the impact what we say can have on them. We forget to filter our words. This week, we’ll look back at what Paul has to say to his friends in the book of Ephesians. He gives them advice on how to filter their words wisely that, when we apply it to our own lives, will give the things we say the power to build rather than break.
