John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Internet addiction. Social media and web sites

I was just wondering if anyone here has ever tried to stay away from the sites we frequent and find themselves thinking of what is going on there when we do?

 

Have you ever looked back at the times before you found the internet and remembered how you spent your time? Have you ever simply walked away from a site and went back to the things you used to do and gauged the level of your productivity ans personal growth when off the internet as opposed to when you are online?

 

Have you ever simply set back and contemplated any change in your levels of anxiety and/or frustration, if any when off line as opposed to online?

 

Have you ever lost your cell phone and felt like, what you would believe you'd feel if you would have lost your wallet or your purse?

 

Think about it! Would you be willing to stop for a week or a month and count how many times you think about it or feel an urge to log in to any of these sites?

I know I send too much time with social media, I stopped using for awhile when my old 3G flip phone stopped working, it certainly showed me that I was addicted to social media. Then I found out how cheap it was to get a touch phone and got back to using social media again. I went back to an old site I used to frequent called MocoSpace, all the same people were there talking the same junk in the forums.

I tried to start conversations with people, hoping I would get a chance to share the Gospel, but they usually get nasty or just ignore you, but I few times I got to have a real conversation with people there, so I pop in every now and then. But I'm terrible at talking in chat rooms, I don' type fast enough and you can only post short messages at a time.

I know this is a problem and I am trying resist becoming one of the statistics. For this reason, I still use a dumb flip phone. Don't know how long I can hold out, though! So far, I seem to be able to control my time spent on social media. The only thing I don't feel guilty doing is using my Bible software/library for reading and study. Once when our internet was down, my son was asking how I could still be on the computer and when I told him I didn't need the internet for my Bible software, it seemed to make him mad! Ha!
