How I Use Facebook! Facebook gets a lot of press, both good and bad! I have heard touching stories about how it has helped people to become reunited and acquainted with one another and I have also heard stories of how it has led to infidelity and broken up marriages. Facebook just like any medium can be used for good or bad – the choice is in the hands and mind of the user!
I have made the choice to use Facebook for good. My wife is my friend and she can see who I am talking with and who is talking with me. In fact, my page is open, so that even non-friends can access my page and see the conversations that I am involved in. This open accountability helps to keep me and hopefully the people who I communicate with in protective boundaries that work for all of our good!
I like to use Face book to keep up with folks. It is nice to know what is going on in the lives of people who I don’t get to see everyday. The fact is that just because our paths don’t cross, doesn’t mean that I don’t care or I am not interested. In fact, just the opposite is true! I do care and I am interested. Facebook just makes it a little easier and more convenient.
1 Corinthians 12:26 speaking of the body of Christ says “If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.” Facebook helps to make this possible by helping me to be aware of who is hurting and who is rejoicing! If you are my friend on Facebook – thanks for being my friend! I am glad that I have the opportunity to know you a little better and I look forward to our friendship growing as we suffer and rejoice together!
