We are so very excited to partner with 7 other bloggers to throw down a challenge….
If you are like the average citizen, you spend roughly 2 hours on just SOCIAL MEDIA!
n 2012, according to the Global Web Index, average media time was around an hour daily. That time has almost doubled in just a few years. And let’s face it, it’s going to increase not decrease, right?
But is it good? What do we, and others, feel like after a bit of time online?
Phillipans 4:8 – 8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, let me say one more thing as I close this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
2 Corinthians 10:5 to “capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ.”
And yet social media CAN used for GOOD…..
1 Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
People use their influences to tell us of a good bargain, a yummy restaurant, a great DIY project (*wink*wink), and yes…even in social justice, humanitarian, and political matters.
However this is NOT a challenge, or call, to influence a certain candidate!!!!!!!
The Be the Light Challenge is to encourage~
- How to share opinions (political or not) in a Godly manner
- How to guard our hearts and minds
- How to deal with conflict online
- Setting limits/boundaries (1 Corinthians 6:12)
- Encouraging/building others up
- Fruits of the Spirit
In the up coming week, Nov 1-8, eight lifestyle bloggers will share their stories and encouragement to shine that light!
Salvage Sister & Mister -Nov 1st
11 Magnolia Lane – Nov 2nd
An Extraordinary Day – Nov 3rd
Plum Doodles – Nov 4th
Blessed Lonestar Mess – Nov 5th

The Homemakers Journal – Nov 8th
Some bloggers will also have extra bonus materials to share with you so be sure to stop by each day to be encouraged and challenged.
If you have stumbled upon this challenge after this week, NO WORRIES!! We encourage you to still proceed. The challenge to be God’s love and light online is timeless!
Please remember that we have prayed, and will be praying, for you during this challenge. We look forward to hearing how God has worked through this week and beyond.
Won’t it be amazing to see all the light ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA? What a change!
