Justin Taylor posted a couple of great quotes from John Newton recently.  I thought they were extremely fitting as you start your new week:
I have seldom one-hour free from interruption. Letters, that must be answered, visitants that must be received, business that must be attended to. I have a good many sheep and lambs to look after, sick and afflicted souls dear to the Lord; and therefore, whatever stands still, these must not be neglected.
And this one:
When I hear a knock at my study door, I hear a message from God. It may be a lesson of instruction; perhaps a lesson of patience: but, since it is his message, it must be interesting.
How do you plan on dealing with interruptions today? You can read more from Justin here.

John Piper writes:  Why should we think of the Facebook app threatening the Bible app? Why not the Bible app threatening the Facebook app, and the email app, and the RSS feeder, and the news? Resolve that today you will press the Bible app three times during the day. No five times. Ten times! Maybe you will lose control and become addicted to Bible! Again and again get a two-minute dose of life-giving Food. Man shall not live by Facebook alone. I’m serious. Never has God’s voice been so easily accessible. Let the Bible threaten your focus. Or better: Let the Bible bring you back to reality over and over during the day. via Desiring God. So… truth be told… which do you check more… Facebook or the Bible?  If your answer is Facebook, how does that make you feel?
