Matthew 5:14-16
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
What\’s the point of having over a 100 friends or followers, if we can not make a difference in their lives?
What\’s the point in calling them friends, if we do not treat them as friends, but rather, like familiar faces on a \”friends list\”?
We all love it when our friend or follower counters goes up. \”Oh I have got a new follower…Someone just followed me, they love me or are interested in engaging with my content,\” we say. We all yearn to be loved, and these counters help in feeding our \”love hunger\”. However, the question is, how hungry are our followers? How hungry are they to be loved? Did they follow us to get followed back or to receive love from a total stranger? Are they okay? Do we really know them, or the things they go through everyday? Do we really understand the hidden messages behind their tweets or posts? Do we know why some of them have stopped posting or appearing online? Was it probably because they felt neglected by others: no one liked, commented or shared what they posted?
We are the light of this world, and social networks or rather the people we meet on them need our light, \”that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.\”
