Five Links I Have Enjoyed -- Dec 29, 2014

First up is a great article from Aaron Earls about how many Christians use social media without thinking about how it reflects on them, or King Jesus. "Many believe (wrongly) as long as they speak the truth, nothing else matters—even, especially, when talking to or about other Christians."

Next, be sure to check out this great interview with Grant Wacker -- the author of a great new biography on Billy Graham.

I loved this article from Jonathan Parnell. He starts off with a story about how his young daughter left him a note in his Bible, which reminded him that he doesn't just read his Bible for himself. In this article he unpacks how we read the Bible for those around us, how the Bible plays a role in our walk, and how interpretation and application must be rooted in hearts that love God.

As a data geek, I loved this informative post from Bible Gateway which shows the most popular chapters, verses and keyword searches from 2014 according to their site and app statistics. 

This last article looks at how something you might be doing right now -- how the internet has ruined changed how we read. We "click on links posted on social networks, reads a few sentences, looks for exciting words, and then grows restless, scampering off to the next page she probably won’t commit to."
