I have decided to give up all of social media for Lent. I spend a lot of time reading tweets, scanning Facebook, Gchatting, and investing in blogs. I don’t believe any of these are inherently bad, but I do know they are taking a toll on my most important relationships.
Instead of silencing myself and praying, I find myself on social media.
Instead of being fully present during a conversation with a friend, I’m reading tweets.
Instead of pulling out my Bible, I open up blogs of Christians I really admire.
And all of this needs to stop. So, good bye for a few weeks cyberworld. I’ll certainly miss all of you, all of your laughs, and all of the encouragement and wisdom I glean from you. I hope to come back with a renewed spirit, a full heart, and full of many posts!
