Social media is a great tool if you use it properly. But how can you make an impact without it taking over your life? Here are three tools I use to manage my social media, save time, and look professional.
I have a love/hate relationship with social media. I use it for ministry and business grudgingly.
I love its potential for good and God. I love connecting with friends and making new connections.
I hate the way Satan uses it to spread filth and foolishness. I hate the open sin, bickering, fighting, debating, bloviating, and pontificating.
I use social media because the Lord told me too. That’s a story for another time.
If you were to look at my social media accounts, you will see a lot of posts that make it seem like I must be on it all the time. I assure you that I am not. In fact, I’ll go through phases where I am semi-active and then I stay off for weeks at a time. But my accounts keep going.
How? I’ve found a few tools that save me countless hours, but still allow me to have an impact online.

Preaching God’s Word is a priceless privilege. Also, it is one of the most stressful jobs on the planet. Spiritual battle, mental strain, emotional stress, and physical neglect create a devastating recipe for bad health.
1 Samuel 4:15–18 “Now Eli was ninety and eight years old; and his eyes were dim, that he could not see.
And the man said unto Eli, I am he that came out of the army, and I fled to day out of the army. And he said, What is there done, my son?
And the messenger answered and said, Israel is fled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God is taken.
And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years.”
Many preachers struggle with their physical health.
There are two stereotypical extremes of preachers. The first is the “plastic preacher.” He looks like a Ken doll with every hair in place, six-pack abs, and way too much emphasis on his appearance.
The second is the “plump preacher.” He is overweight, unfit, and gives way too little thought to his appearance.

This mistake creates a self-destructive loop of dashed hopes and continuing mediocrity. New Year’s resolutions are a great example of this trend. A University of Scranton study suggested that only 8% of people who make New Year’s Resolutions achieve them. The statistics on resolutions get worse from there.
Many stick with them for less than a week.
Less than half keep them for more than six months.
Can be listed up to 10x without success.
