10. Am I being fed by the Word or by the words of social media?
Slide 10 of 10
Scripture quotes, inspirational videos, and biblical musings on social media cannot replace the foundational truths of the Bible. We need to spend time in the Word to grow and mature in our faith.
Ask yourself: Am I drawn more to the messages on social media than to God’s messages?
Skip the temptation to turn to the internet for spiritual growth. Instead, set aside daily time to read and study the Bible for yourself. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) Be disciplined by turning off all electronic notifications during your personal devotions. This will be a spiritual discipline you will be thankful for in the years to come. (For more on studying the Bible, read here.)
A Prayer for Young Christians

We pray that young Christians everywhere will hold fast to your Word and be led by your Spirit. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
