We wake up and check it, we get a break at work so we grab a peek, at lunch we scroll through, and we end our day with one last check at who or if anyone, liked our post on social media. Why do we care?
We care because we were created with an innate need for connection – since birth!
Genesis 2:18 tells us
“And the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.'”
Thank God He created others so we have other human connections! We need them, we desire a relationship with them. But social media is not the way to get that need fulfilled. When we use devices, social media, we put up a wall around ourselves that protects us, or so we think. You see we can put on this mask and pretend we are this person we would love to actually be in reality, but we are only fooling ourselves and prolonging the real need we have had within each of us since birth.
What is that need? What is that ache and longing within every heart, whether we choose to believe and accept it or not? It’s a relationship with Him…with the Creator of the world, the Almighty Lord of all. He created each of us to have a personal relationship with Him! What a privilege we each have yet we choose every single thing this world has to offer us and try to fill the void, the emptiness, the ache and longing within our core…except Him.
Oh come to The Father, His arms are open wide. Just come as you are…no need to worry about how you look, your innermost thoughts…He already knows you and loves you beyond your wildest dreams! He’s just waiting for you…won’t you choose to have a relationship with Him now before anymore time passes you by, before anymore hurts and brokenhearted friendships this world has to offer?
