Book Review: #Struggles: Following Jesus in a Selfie-Centered World by Craig Groeschel
This book takes a detailed look at how social media can potentially change our relationships with God, with others, and with self. It is not a book that says technology is evil, but rather focuses on how to keep your relationships and online habits in perspective.
I hesitated to pick this book up because while I love the author, I wasn’t really sure how much this applied to me. I thought I had my social media stuff under control. I was wrong. This book will have chapters that hit home to different people in different places; because everyone is unique, but if you have an online presence, you will most likely find yourself somewhere in this book.
P.S. If you haven’t read The Christian Atheist, go read it today. It is one of my favorites! It’s all about the way Christians say they believe, but deny Christ with their lives. Great stuff.
“Because Jesus is all we need, let’s pursue him with our whole hearts. Only in him will we find true joy and true contentment. Only he is life, and only he truly satisfies.”
“Social media practically trains us to present a self that isn’t honest.” (I loved this because if you think about it, you don’t post all ten bad pictures you take-you only post the good one)
“But to say that you care but not act is not to care at all. Compassion requires action.”
