Let’s be honest. We’ve all been guilty of painting a less-than-honest picture of ourselves—or others—through social media. But the Bible reminds us that what we say—whether online or in person—matters. How we talk about others, and ourselves, is important. And it all starts with what’s inside our hearts. So where do you need to rethink what you say online? What things are you dealing with inside that need to stop showing up on your newsfeed? What do you need to do to become the person you want to be—not just the person you want everyone to think you are?
Recap of Action Point:
Choose one night and get everyone in your family off the grid. That means a full media blackout for everyone in your household for 6-9 hours. No Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vine … no Internet at all. In fact, get really serious and have a designated and out-of-reach spot for everyone to put their phones—and iPads, tablets … you name it—and instead, spend that time in face-to-face, quality family time. You could go out for a family night or a have a media-free zone at home and have a meal and after-dinner game night together. Here are some fun dinner table questions to get your night rolling.
- If you could have picked your own name, what would it be?
- If you had to eat the same meal every night for dinner, what would you eat?
- Which of your friends do you think I/we like the most? Why?
- What is the earliest memory you have of our family?
- What would you do if you were invisible for a day?
- Would you rather be: A professional athlete, an actor/actress or a singer? Why?
- What punishment have I/we given you that you thought was really unfair? Why?
- What fast food restaurant could you eat at for an entire day—breakfast, lunch and dinner?
