What is the response folks get when they post selfies? Are they seeking a “wow you look good” or something along those lines? Seeking the selfie response is dangerous and is further evidence of a yielding to the plan of the enemy. The only response that we should be seeking is God’s response to the work that we do for the Kingdom. Seeking the selfie response is a form of practicing your own righteousness. (Matthew 6:1-4) Our response is to glorify God for who He is and what He has done in our lives. An obsession with selfies gets us away from giving God glory because we are too busy trying to give ourselves glory and get others to agree and support that instead of giving glory to God.
Another example of practicing your own righteousness is posting to dead people and to people who you know don’t use social media. It’s all about the response. If mama has gone on to be with the Lord, why are you wishing her a happy birthday on social media? What response are you looking for from your friends? That’s a form of saying you wish she was here with you instead of being where she is with Jesus. Why are you trying to bring mama back from the presence of the Lord? (Philippians 1:21-24) There are so many other examples of folks seeking a response. Can you think of any?
Don’t seek the response. Give glory to God. Contact the ministry at stwteachingministry.com
