How can Christians engage with others through blogging and social media without being too timid or too self-promotional? Maintaining a healthy online presence can be a difficult balancing act.
1 Peter 4:10 says, “Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve others, as good stewards of the varied grace of God” (CSB).
God gives gifts to his children because he is good and he loves us. We are responsible for using the gifts God has given us to serve others. But, figuring out how this applies to the digital space can be overwhelming.
Why Does LifeWay Social Exist?
We see a need. A lot of people have gifts that translate well into the digital space—gifts of writing, speaking, or others. But it can be difficult to figure out what social media platforms to use, how to start a blog, or otherwise spend your time and money online.
LifeWay Social exists to come alongside Christians in order to help them use the gifts God has given them to serve others. We were not given gifts and talents to make ourselves rich and famous, but for the good of other people.
LifeWay Social wants to guide ministry-minded people to use digital communications like blogs and social media for the good of others.
