Facebook is all over the news this week as its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, prepares to testify before Congress over alleged data leaks. As social media draws more attention from our lawmakers, it should also be considered by its’ users. In many ways, social media can be a mask that we wear to show off who we want to be rather than who we are. At the same time, social media can be an incredibly powerful unifier, bridging gaps and spreading news faster and more personally than anything else in our society. So how can we be a force for good and voice for Jesus through social media? It starts with embracing ourselves as we are, not as we wish to be. The Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” We create Godly relationships when we reveal to others the person God created. So, whether on social media or in real life, you, the unfiltered you, are the unifier that God intended you to be. Today, take the first step towards embracing the person God created you to be and open yourself up to others in Christ’s name.

“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” – 1 Samuel 16:7 ESV
