Recently, I heard a study that showed social media usage is up almost 100% from 2012. Years ago people spent on average 1.25 hours a day on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc. As of 2015, that number has risen to over 2 hours/day! That means almost 10% of EVERYONE’s day (on average) is spent on a mobile phone, computer, or tablet updating or reading status alerts, watching videos, or “liking” something on-line.
To me, the number is unbelievable, because I don’t spend 5 minutes a day on average on Facebook – and I don’t Tweet or Youtube. That means somebody is out there using not only their 2 hours, but also mine! Wow!
And we wonder why our world is growing darker day by day?
I wonder what would happen if people stopped Facebooking, in order to seek His Face and His Book?
I’ve always said, if it’s in the Bible, it’s important. If it’s in the Bible more than once, then it’s really important:
“If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
My heart says of you, “Seek His face!” Psalm 27:8
“You will seek Me and find Me…and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations.” Jeremiah 29:13-14
It is written “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4
“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” John 15:7
“Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom.” Colossians 3:16
