official-facebook-logo-slideLast night I decided to take action on something I’ve been contemplating for a while: I deactivated my Facebook account. My next twenty days will be Facebook free. Here’s why:

  1. To be a better steward of my time. There are other, better things I can be doing.
  2. To be a better husband and father. Attention is the biggest gift we can give our wives and children.
  3. To spend more time in prayer. Facebook has edged its way into the parts of the day typically used for prayer.
  4. To better manage my energy. There are better, truly restorative things I can do.
  5. To cultivate a positive attitude. Lately Facebook has felt like a public squabble.

What about you? Have you ever taken a Facebook fast?
