ESV.TO….WHAT’S THAT?

In 1 Timothy 4:13, Paul instructs Timothy to give himself to the “public reading of Scripture.”  With the ever-increasing use and impact of social media within our culture, one helpful way to publicly encourage those around you (often in 140 characters or less) is with the ESV.to URL.  I’ve found it super helpful, as of late, when including Scripture in my tweets.  Visit the ESV.to main site to learn how easy it is to use.

“The great thing about ESV.to, however, is that by remembering a few simple, logical rules (detailed on the site) you can create the link yourself without having to use the generator.

For example: If you wanted to read Matthew 5 online you could visit www.esvonline.org and search for Matthew 5 or you could use the service’s easy-to-remember format and simply type “esv.to/Mt5″ into your web browser to navigate directly there. Likewise, to shorten a link in a tweet you could either visit http://www.esv.to and type “Matthew 5″ into the generator or simply use “http://esv.to/Mt5″.” (From the ESV.org blog)
