The Gift Of Writing
Another sub job in my school district another lesson learned. Let me get right to it, as I was wandering the halls after school I noticed in one of the hallways there was a tribute to the great writers of the world.
I started to read some of the poems and short stories posted by some of the students, however, there was one poem that caught my attention.
The title of the poem was "why I write." The student expressed that writing gives VOICE to what she feels. The poem said with much force and emotion that writing gives her a VEHICLE to say those things that were on her mind.
This got me to thinking about the Bible. God has given us His voice, His mind, His Will, in one glorious book; the Bible.
(For those who would like to investigate the history of how we got our Bibles here is an excellent resource): http://www.anabaptists.org/history/howwegot.html
Let us not leave our Bibles on the shelves to collect dust; pick up your Bible, love God's Word, study God's Word, remembering that "Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him" (proverbs 30:5, New International Version).
Take God's flawless Word and let it be the meditation of your heart day and night, psalm 1:2.
