Facebook, Twitter, Web, Letters, Email, Cell Phone, Text Messages, Interruptions.
All of these are in ADDITION to what leadership really is – to inspire people to change and grow toward what God wants them to be. And to introduce the hope of Jesus to those who are not followers.
YOU FOCUSED for THREE ONE-HOUR SEGMENTS each day? Turn off everything and get the important things cleaned up and out of the way. Then ENJOY the other stuff systematically.

Coffee, Facebook, Twitter, Picture Sharing, Wall Posting … they are all about one main thing — CONNECTION. Just this past week I have heard from classmates, relatives, young people I have mentored, and even my mom.
As a Christ Follower, whenever I read about Jesus who WAS the great teacher (and the one I choose to direct my life) actually went out of His way — often to make these “connections”.
I would have loved to read his Tweets or Status Updates:
- “Have a meal with me … “
- “Feed my lambs … “
- “Just told the guys to throw the net on the other side — we’re gonna have a lot of fish tonight!”
- “On my way to raise a dear friend from the dead …”
- “I love you, even though you haven’t realized it yet.”
- “Father, forgive them …”
You may want to read some of these bible-time updates yourself. You could start with the Gospel of John, it’s a great read.
