Striking the balance between ‘celebrating/witnessing your giving and faith’ while not ‘boasting/showing off’ can be difficult.
A blogger came up with the idea to post pictures of your personal devotional time and then hashtagging it using #lampandlight. Not a bad idea, but is sharing your personal time with Jesus necessary? What if the action of sharing the photo actually becomes a distraction? It definitely has for some, and there’s a funny parody video poking fun at this practice. See here, Christian Girl Instagram.
Don’t worry about what the world thinks, be focused on pleasing our God.
Read Matthew 6
- Is your giving to the needy something which is done to attract the praise of others, or out of love for God?
- What is a prayer? Who is authorised to say a prayer? Does it need to be a certain length? Does it need to be said out loud? Does it need to be said at a certain time?
