Q is for Quality
As I am currently on day 4 of my 21 day Social Media Fast it has become clear to me that the quality of my choices when it comes to encouragement has been not as good as they could be. For example, I am finding that I am on facebook way too much. I'm there when I'm bored, when I'm waiting, whenever possible actually and that is not good. There is no balance in that.
Now, I am very selective who I have on my facebook and because of that, most of my facebook feed is very encouraging with lots of positive quotes and biblical quotes and I find it easier to go scrolling through facebook for my encouragement. I should be going to God's Word for my encouragement, for my growth, for my soul, for my heart and for my nourishment! God's word is the ultimate QUALITY encouragement and learning ground for me. It is where I am exhorted and fed and convicted and blessed the most. It is where I will find all the answers to my questions.
My post this morning is not long, but it is for me a reminder that if I truly want quality input in my life, God's word is the place to be.
Heb 4 v 12: For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.
