On social media, it’s better to get your worth from God than from your likes.
We all use social media, right? Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter—they’re all a part of our everyday lives. Who doesn’t love posting a great picture, sharing a funny link, or starting a conversation with a friend online? While there are de nitely some awesome things about social media, we can all probably agree that there’s a downside to it as well. When we don’t get as many likes, comments, or shares as we hoped for, we start to wonder if something might be wrong not just with what we posted but maybe even with us. And before we know it, social media goes from being a cool way to communicate to the lter through which we view our self-worth. The good news for us is that while social media might be a more modern concept, the struggle with how we view ourselves is de nitely not! In fact, the Apostle Paul wrote to some of his friends who struggled with the exact same thing. And as we take a look at what he said to them, we’ll see that the best lter we can use to view ourselves is the lter God gives us.
