The concept is simple.
Write the Word.
Why Write the Word?
It is biblical. Do you need more of a reason?
Now it shall come about when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this law on a scroll in the presence of the Levitical priests. It shall be with him and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, by carefully observing all the words of this law and these statutes, that his heart may not be lifted up above his countrymen and that he may not turn aside from the commandment, to the right or the left, so that he and his sons may continue long in his kingdom in the midst of Israel.
I have a lot of Bibles. 48 to be exact.
Our house OBVIOUSLY does not need another Bible. And while I write notes in my Bible, as reminders to myself and a legacy to pass on to my children, I am grossly negligent in copying the scriptures in front of my children, as Moses instructed the future Kings to do (in order not turn to the left or the right – but to remain focused on God).
I don’t have to #writetheword, I am choosing to write the Word.
Our pastor regularly reminds us, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10: 17)
While I wholeheartedly agree with my husband’s bike buddy, sometimes I feel like the Word goes in one ear and out the other. Can I get a witness?
