Principles:
  1. Something that thinks about itself all the time is usually a sign of something that is injured or broken.
  2. If we are having our needs met by a sovereign, loving, and all-sufficient Lord, we should not require constant attention from others.
  3. If the purpose of what you are doing is to draw attention to yourself and not to the Lord, there is probably a problem.
  4. If you are doing something online that is unwholesome, you can be sure it is not a good idea.
  5. If what you are doing is not for the good of others, but rather is self-advancing, it is not a worthy post.
  6. Invite feedback from others close to you who are willing to speak truth in love, and not just those who benefit from your post.
  7. We often regret the things we say more than the things we don’t say.
  8. Social media is a great medium for sharing the gospel, but don’t attract more attention to yourself than the gospel message.
Scripture: “And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 “I say to you, among those born of women there is no one  greater than John; yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.” Luke 7:28 “He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30 “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.” Colossians 3:17 “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all  to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31 “Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth,…” Ephesians 4:29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.” Ephesians 4:29 “Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips”. (Proverbs 27:2) “… clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5 “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,” 1 Peter 5:6 “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” James 1:5 Other Resources: What Does It Mean to Have Your Life Hidden With Christ in God?
