Having someone by my side doesn’t mean that they could out-do God.
In other words, I should not let ‘him’ replace ‘Him’. While I’m getting to know my significant other, the reality is that we both need God, and it’s a blessing to know that we can seek and serve Him daily together.

In addition, if the number of likes you get depend on how scandalous your pictures are there is another serious problem. The people who are liking your posts don’t value you. They are simply enticed and entertained by what you are putting on display.
