Ecclesiastes 12:9

9 Not only was the Teacher wise, but he also imparted knowledge to the people. He pondered and searched out and set in order many proverbs.        

Biblical concepts are instrumental to changes of purposeless lifestyle into significance. Believers who strongly trust the Holy Scripture pray for godly wisdom to practically apply biblical principles that inspire them of possible changes in their lifestyle. Many influencers post biblical life principles on social media and hope to influence others of possible change of lifestyle.  Does it mean that influencers practice what they posted on their account?

It is very much admirable when social media influencers practically apply in their life biblical concepts they share on their profile. It is also a reality that they may not necessarily want to change their lifestyle. Well, they may expect that their subscribers would benefit from biblical concepts they posted on their profiles. However, confused readers may negatively respond when lifestyles of influencers are contradictory to what they share on social media. And when positive ideas garner negative comments, it does not sit well with someone. Such are realities of another level of spiritual warfare or is it modern-day pharisaical lifestyle?

The Lord Jesus had warned about cthe hypocritical lifestyle of the teachers of the law and the Pharisees in Matthew 23:3, 3So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 

Hypocrisy and pretension can be misleading, but with sound judgment and discretion, we can avoid possible unproductive reaction. Godly wisdom is best displayed in sound judgment and discretion. Whenever biblical principles are ignored, sinful human nature has prevailed. It is best to be filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit of God; he will guide us to apply biblical principles practically and cause us to praise and thank him now and until eternity.

  Lord Jesus, fill me with your Holy Spirit always.
