Think Before You Update Your Status

It bothers me how many people will put up a status update in Facebook about how 'God' will see you through anything or about how 'blessed' they are by God, and then in their next update they are writing about getting wasted, hooking up, or saying f*&% and other unmentionables.
Do you really think God is with you and blessing you when you represent yourself and your values that way? What God are you even talking about?
The God of the Bible does not bless a live of continual, blatant sinfulness (Romans 6:1). It is true that everyone makes mistakes and that everyone sins without the help of Jesus (Romans 6:23), but to go on in that kind of speech and behavior intentionally shows that a person's heart is far from God and the love of God is not in him (1 John 2:1-6). Non-repentant sinners make a mockery of God's grace when they speak of him like a friend.

If you are a Christian keep this command from the Apostle Paul in mind as you update your Facebook page and post your Tweets:
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
(Ephesians 4:29 ESV)
