Craig Groeschel teaches us abot how to handle Social Media properly as followers of Christ, so it doesn’t become our master.
It’s a very helpful book for any human being dealing with Social Media. The first one on this topic I read and I needed it.
I identify so much with lots of the things he mentioned.
I especially like how he talks to you as a friend. He pretty much says: “look, I’m not in the business of condemning you, I’m the first one #struggling with this, I just want to help you”. That’s how I felt it and it’s great.
There were a lot of things this book made me consider regarding my attitude toward Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and my blog. I certainly don’t want them to be an idol (which could happen) so I need to set some boundaries before it’s too late.
In the book there are so many ways to apply what he’s teaching in everyday life and that’s awesome.
I gave 4 stars because I found the book repetitive at moments, some chapters a bit longer than they should, but that could be just me.
Generally speaking, it’s a great read. Especially the chapters on Integrity, Encouragement and Compassion touched me deeply.
I do recommend it!
**I received a copy of this book from Zondervan through BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own**
– “I don’t know how long you’ve been out, but with Christ you’re not out”.
– “Becoming obsessed with what people think about you is the quickest way to forget what God thinks about you”.
– “It’s not wrong to spread gossip; it’s wrong to consume it. Why? Because what you permit, you promote”.
– “When in doubt, wait it out”. Great advice!
– “Post only out of love”.
