Unplug

After several years on a couple social networking sites, I've decided to unplug for a bit.  Sitting in front of the computer reading status updates, loading photos and commenting on friend's pages for a few hours at a time have finally taken its toll.  I have enjoyed rekindling friendships and reconnecting with distant relatives, but the pros just don't out-weight the cons for me.  As more people have joined, I believe these sites have evolved into more than a site to stay connected.  They have turned into a places for people to boast, bully, and exclude others.  There are those who want to give the illusion of a perfect life through their posts, and there are those who are voyeurs that envy the perfect family, perfect vacation, perfect kids, etc.  Many marriages and families are even broken because of these sites.  The grass may look greener on the other side of the road, but it certainly isn't perfectly green.  Nothing is perfect.  Unfortunately, precious time is wasted on these crazy sites that bring about emotions that can interfere with God's plan for our lives.  We all have special gifts and are destined for greatness in this world.  How can we accomplish what we were meant to be if we're so wrapped up in other people's lives through their status updates, photos, apps, etc.?


Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. - Luke 12:7
