Why do we (bloggers, authors, poets, etc.) write anything at all?

 

So here I sit with a ton of ideas in my head to write about, but every time I start typing I erase what I just wrote.  Why?  Because it has already been written.  I can quickly do a google search on why moral relativism is self-refuting, or why two world views can’t both be right, or anything to do with homosexuality (whether for or against).  Everything has been written.  So I am going to quote from one of the books of Wisdom, Ecclesiastes and be done with this post tonight:

 

 

 

Ecclesiastes, (קֹהֶלֶת, Kohelet, &quo...

“In addition to the Teacher being a wise man, he constantly taught the people knowledge; he weighed, explored, and arranged many proverbs. The Teacher sought to find delightful sayings and to accurately write words of truth.

The sayings of the wise are like goads, and those from masters of collections are like firmly embedded nails.  The sayings are given by one Shepherd. But beyond these, my son, be warned: there is no end to the making of many books, and much study wearies the body.  When all has been heard, the conclusion of the matter is: fear God and keep His commands, because this is for all humanity.  For God will bring every act to judgment, including every hidden thing, whether good or evil.” (Ecclesiastes 12:9-14, HCSB)

Make all your days count.  Live what you believe, even if it creates conflict.  In the midst of the conflict, prove your faith – in yourself or in your god.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peace,
