Wise Words on Good and Bad Tweeting
In your forthcoming commentary on Proverbs you write, “Twitter and blogs and emails would be cleared of much conflict if we humbled our opinions before Christ. What are we here for, really? What does God want to be stirred up in our hearts? He says, stir one another up to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24).” Unpack that for a moment. What, in your mind, is the effect of a failed tweet? What is the intended effect of a successful tweet?
A failed tweet displays Self.
A successful tweet displays Christ.
Who cares about the details of my daily life? I hardly care myself.
But I think we can all agree on this: we must decrease, but he must increase.
What I aim at in using the media is another person being able to click in and click out quickly, with maximum benefit to their souls.
Everyone is so busy. But everyone matters.
I want to ask little of them, and add much to them.
I am there to serve, not to demand or impress, by giving them more of Jesus.
