“Social Media: Ethics, Character, and Morals”

“To others, our social media posts are a reflection of ourselves. It’s easy for us to get sucked into the social media dark hole and not see the perception of what we post.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did Romans 12:2 (NLT) – Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

“Awww man, I’m about to lose a lot of friends with this one! Oh well, I have to share what I’m led to share and right now it’s how our social media posts reflect our ethics, character, and morals. Now before you start cursing me out, hear me out. Let’s ask ourselves, “Are my pages filled with self-serving posts or are they filled with those that are self-forgetting?” Are we continually showing how much we are tied up in self-worth? Are we portraying a false life? For example, I love a good selfie more than anyone and I too am very conscious about my appearance, but we also should remember that God fearfully and wonderfully made us and He believes we are one of a kind and perfect as we are – without filters! Look, social media took off in 2004 with Facebook followed by Twitter, Instagram, etc. so we have had more than enough time to master the art of being authentic, genuine and true to ourselves when it comes to our posts on any social media platform. Hey, let’s be proud of our accomplishments and successes and share our blessings with the world, it’s our right and we should – but let’s just not get trapped into so much self-promotion that we fail to receive the opportunity to bring out the best in others. Let’s not only use social media to lift ourselves, let’s lift others along with us.” – #ToddCPittman
