It seems that whenever the LORD wants to make a point that HE really wants me to heed, He lets me know it in at least three different ways (I must be sort of dense).
So over a period of two days, I read these two blog posts:
Saying farewell to facebook.
Your digital life is not your real life.
And then saw this quote on, of all things, a friend's facebook status:
One of the great uses of Twitter and Facebook will be to prove at the Last Day that prayerlessness was not from lack of time." - John Piper
So, I have deactivated my facebook account. I figure I spend 20-30 minutes nearly every day checking facebook statuses (but primarily looking for cute grandbaby pics).
That is over two hours a week! I can think of dozens of other ways to use that time...maybe even sending actual letters to people! Or yes, praying.
What about you? Do you have a facebook account? Do you need one? I think it can be a great tool. I love seeing my youth pastor sons using it to communicate with their students.
But as for me and my house? We're not gonna have facebook anymore.
