Happy last-Friday-of-August, y’all!
Here are some useful and/or interesting links for your weekend:
- Steve Mizel on Gospel-Centered Discipleship has some advice for how to “win” in the social media age.
- Can’t do one of these without throwing in some great Seth Godin links, so here are his posts on the $50,000/hr gate agent, making things better, the inevitability of weather, and ten words per page.
- I’m adding my “amen” to this Desiring God article from April about drinking coffee (and other caffeinated drinks) to the glory of God.
- I’ve beaten this drum before (and may even have shared this link before) but Tim Challies argues it’s time to break free from an algorithm-driven life by being our own curators. (Brett McKay argues the same thing over at The Art of Manliness.)
- Kevin DeYoung lists some distinguishing marks of a quarrelsome person. Worth a bit of self-reflection.
- Cal Newport on how badly the media covered AOC’s exit from Facebook.
- SpaceKappa Joe’s review of Mountain Dew Liberty Brew is a great read–even if you would never drink Mountain Dew Liberty Brew.
- As a lay elder, this 9Marks article about what lay elders need to know was really helpful.
- Ann Handley is a great writer, and her newsletter is absolutely worth signing up for. Here’s a post by Ann about why it’s important to carve your own bear.
- Jeremy Anderberg at AoM has 6 ideas for how to streamline your morning. I can attest that when I use these tips, it absolutely works. And yeah, they may seem obvious, but how often do we fail to do obvious, common-sense things?
Hope these were helpful. If you liked any of these links, I’d appreciate you leaving me a comment below (or hit me up on Twitter!) so I know what you find helpful.
Have a great weekend, friends!
