In the movie School of Rock, Jack Black plays a rocker in between gigs who cons his way into a job teaching kids at an exclusive academy. Instead of math, science and history, he teaches them to rock. When he finds out one of them has written a song he immediately asks the kid to play a few bars. Then he tells everyone to grab their instruments.
“What are you doing?”
“We’re gonna learn your song.”
“But why ?”
“That’s what bands do, man.
Play each other’s songs.
You got lyrics? Hook me up.”
Today I’m hoping to say something as straight forward and constructive as that movie dialog:
If I publish a blog, tweet or Facebook post and you want to leave a comment with a link to a post you wrote on a related topic, please do. We need to be here for each other. That’s why it’s called social media and not anti-social media.
After all, this blog has a purpose and that purpose is to glorify God and encourage people.
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. (John 13:34-35.)
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds … . (Hebrews 10:24.)
So please, if you wrote something related to a post here at my place feel free to link your post.
It’s a great way to spur one another on in God’s love.
It’s what we do.
