We may find ourselves following certain famous people on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. If nothing else, we have wasted that time on social media which we could have spent with loved ones, reading a good book, exercising or praying.
For Reflection: God gave us our bodies, our hearing, our eyesight to use for his glory. Have I neglected my family or my prayer time, yet found time to spend on TV or social media? Have I developed an improper fantasy life with a celebrity? Do I find my real life to be lacking and humdrum when compared with my imagination or the lives of others? Has this led me to depression and dissatisfaction with what God has given me?
Let us pray. Father, I don't need to be rich or famous. I appreciate all that you have given me in the way of family and home. I don't need to store up riches. I don't need the latest electronics, the most expensive car and homes around the world. I don't want to seek after a fantasy life. I want to seek after you and after your kingdom and trust that you will provide for my needs (Luke 12:14-31). I repent of all the time and imagination I have wasted and I ask you to forgive me.
