Godly Blogging

Sal from Stand Up and Walk posted a link to the following advice on Godly blogging. I have only posted the Bible verses. Read more at Under the Acacias.

Biblical advice for bloggers
Under the Acacias

1. Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your blog, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs. (Eph 4:29)">

2. Blog about others as you would have them blog about you (Lk 6:31)

3. But in your blogs set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience... (1Pet 3:15,16)

4. Each one should use whatever blog he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms (1Pet 4:10)

5. Let us therefore make every effort to blog what leads to peace and to mutual edification. (Ro 14:19) And Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the blog of peace (Eph 4:2)

6. Accept him whose blog is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters...Let us stop blogging judgment on one another... whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves. (Ro 14:1-22)

7. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - blog about such things. (Phil 4:8)

I always love to read that last verse - Philippians 4:8. It pertains to so much: what we think, what we read, what we watch on TV or in movies, and what we say and discuss with others. I consider it to be one of the basic building blocks of living a Christ-like life.

I will be taking all of these blog verses to heart. I think they will help me to remember that, though I am a blogger, I am first and foremost a Christian and I should behave as one. Oh, if wishes were horses...
