Social media is very popular today. While platforms like Facebook often appeal to young people first, older adults, including many parents and grandparents, often have a social media presence as well.
As adults and parents engage with these platforms, we must remain conscious of the social media habits of ourselves and our families. Do our kids engage with social media in a safe or constructive way? Do we?
What Proverbs 12 can Teach Us About Our Social Media Habits
When we think of social media and the dangers involved in it, we often think of our kids as they amass a following of friends they have never actually met and troll for “Likes” with almost neurotic frenzy.
But could we be as neurotic as our kids when it comes to social media? Could our kids be eavesdropping on our social media habits more than we are overseeing theirs? Have our habits betrayed our right to critique theirs?
Social media too often becomes a platform for sharing what only our closest friends and relatives should know about us. Proverbs 12:26 says, “A righteous man is cautious in friendship, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.”
