Facebook has become very popular for good reasons, bringing people together to share their lives. Find the good about Facebook, but don’t get pulled into gossip, slander, lies, etc. Facebook can be a good thing if you use it right. When you post on Facebook, try to be encouraging and positive. With Facebook or any part of your life, don’t say or post anything negative that you would not want someone to say or post about you! I have enjoyed using social media for the last few years. Although I like it, it is an excellent social tool when used correctly. Although, it burns up more time than I want it to.

I have had to learn to be disciplined and only get on the internet for social media, maybe once a week or two. It is a beautiful way to connect with old friends and keep in touch with the newer ones in this fast-paced world. Facebook, used with discipline and self-control, can be an excellent way to stay in contact with family and friends! I encourage you to not only have Facebook friends but also to have friends in real life that you talk to on the phone, get together in person, and not be concerned about how many friends you have on Facebook. Being together with your friends is a very important thing to do. Sometimes, Facebook puts a damper on real-time friendships. ~ Bill Greguska

Proverbs 3:5-6  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways, submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

There Are Some Pros And Cons Of Facebook

Facebook can be good, but it can also be a bad thing! NeedEncouragement.com

Where else can you communicate all over the world with your friends?

Decide For Yourself What You Think About Facebook Because Facebook Is Like:

  1. McDonald’s or any other fast-food restaurant doesn’t replace home cooking, and just like McDonald’s, Facebook can be unhealthy at times, just the same. 
  2. It is easy to stay connected with others you know and some you do not know.
  3. If you are not disciplined enough to control your time on the Internet, you might find that Facebook will control you. 
  4. Seeing photos and inspirational comments from close friends and acquaintances can be encouraging.
  5. You can lose a lot of time being on the internet without knowing it, which takes away time for other things.
  6. The Internet can take time away from others in real-time, yet the Internet can be enjoyable when too tired to do something.
  7. It is a great way to stay in touch with most people’s fast pace of life.
  8. Realize that being an Internet friend does not necessarily mean you are friends with that person. 

Facebook was not created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission – to make the world more open and connected. ~ Mark Zuckerberg

Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what helps build others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.





Some Specific Scriptures To Encourage You:

Proverbs 18:24 ESV

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

2 Timothy 3:1-7 ESV 

But understand this that in the last days, there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 

1 Corinthians 15:33 ESV 

Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”

Galatians 4:16 ESV 

Have I then become your enemy by telling you the truth?

Ecclesiastes 7:21-22 ESV 

Do not take to heart all the things that people say, lest you hear your servant cursing you. Your heart knows that many times you yourself have cursed others.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 ESV

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful.

Romans 10:17 ESV 

So faith comes from hearing and hearing through the word of Christ.

Matthew 24:14 ESV 

And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

Philippians 2:3-7 ESV 

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 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, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped but emptied himself by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

Luke 9:53-62 ESV

But the people did not receive him because his face was set toward Jerusalem. And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, “Lord, do you want us to tell fire to come down from heaven and consume them?” But he turned and rebuked them. And they went on to another village. As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”

Jeremiah 7:8 ESV 

“Behold, you trust in deceptive words to no avail.
