David Murray has decided to dedicate much of his time on the Head Heart Hand blog this year to opening our eyes to the reality that digital technology is not only diminishing our relationships (with others and with God), but killing our peace, our health, and our morality. We need a serious overhaul of our self-control, self-awareness, and digital self-discipline, and Murray is determined to help us get there.
Digital technology has punctured every part of our being and is slowly psssssssing the life out of us.
I, for one, will be following along with what he has to say throughout the year, and look forward to doing more of what truly matters.
Not rocket science, but terrific and fitting as we think about the new year and how to make the most of the time we have to advance the gospel, minimise distraction, and magnify Christ in how we use our time, how we engage with those around us who bear the image of God, and where we invest our time and energy. Which of these would most grow you and glorify Christ in 2017?

I remember reading MacArthur’s 2014 Being a Dad who Leads again not too long ago. It won’t be the last time I read it, but MacArthur has a new (2016) book on this topic now called Brave Dad. This post is a helpful summary to make you want to buy it, and apply it.
