What I Read Online – 05/20/2013 (p.m.)

    • This avoids moralism.  It also helps avoid same-y expressions of good biblical theology that might pay too little attention to the details of each particular narrative.
    • But we need to notice not just the complaints the biblical saints sometimes make, but the responses God gives
    • By considering the scope of the Bible’s teaching on this subject, we may conclude that it is acceptable to bring all our cares to God, including matters that may move us to frustration or anger. However, we must not come to God in a spirit of complaint or anger against Him, for it is never proper to accuse God of wrongdoing
    • How many parents realize that they are the custodians of their children’s virtual identity until they are old enough to manage it on their own?
    • Every day parents use social media and the blogosphere to offer up photos and posts chronicling all manner of child misbehavior, parental frustrations, and mishaps involving bodily fluids. I think these posts are made by well-meaning parents, unaware that they are creating an online identity for their children. But with every post, we construct a digital history of our child’s life—a virtual scrapbook for public viewing—and we might want to think harder about the trail we are leaving behind. Do our comments and photos preserve our child’s dignity or gratify our own adult sense of comedy? Do we post our thoughts to satisfy a need to vent? Do we miss the truth that our families need our discretion far more than our blog followers need our authenticity?
    • Consider that your toddlers will likely one day see the online identity you have created for them. And so may their middle school peers, their prom date, their college admissions board, and their future employers. But far more important than what the outside world will think of this digital trail is what your child will think of it
    • T-H-I-N-K: Is what I have to say True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary, or Kind?
