Social Media Isn’t Your Teens’ Biggest Problem

“Social media, mobile phones, and the selfie world we inhabit are problematic, but they’re not the primary problems for our teens. Jesus tells us “there is nothing outside a person that by going into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him” (Mark 7:15). While outside influences are sources of temptation, our own fallen nature leads us to think and act sinfully. The negative behaviors we fear, then, are byproducts of what’s going on in our idolatrous hearts. The heart is the problem for our teenagers, and also for us.”

A great read and reminder by Kristen Hatton.
