Biblical passwords

I don't know about y'all, but I use the same password for most everything. Our IT guy at work surely hates me because I am guilty of not having ten different passwords for all the different sites I have to use.

You know, to prevent hackers from finding out that I get a lot of emails from my siblings about healthy recipes, or when I add another post to my Twitter feed about my cray-cray two-year-old daughter, Penny. #terrifctwos

If the password you use the most is "123456" or just "password," congratulations, you have a lot of company. Those are the top two in a list that Captain Obvious would be proud of.

My new idea is to tailor a password to each email and social media site I use with a verse from the Bible. Here are my picks:

FACEBOOK

Matthew_5:16 - “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."

INSTAGRAM

Psalm_97:7 - "All who worship images are put to shame, those who boast in idols— worship him, all you gods!"

TWITTER

Colossians_4:6 - "Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone."

FOURSQUARE

Genesis_3:9 - "But the Lord God called to the man, 'Where are you?'"

BLOGGER

Ephesians_5:15 - "Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk—not as unwise people but as wise—"

LINKEDIN

2_Timothy_2:15 - "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth."

MYSPACE

Ezekiel_26:13 - "I will put an end to your noisy songs, and the music of your harps will be heard no more."

YELP

2_Corinthians_3:1 - "Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, like some, letters of recommendation to you or from you?"

YOUTUBE

Job_7:17 - "What is man, that You think so highly of him and pay so much attention to him?"

PINTEREST

Romans_12:13 - "Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality."
