"Skimming" Wasn't Invented Back Then

Whatever happened to sitting down at the table, with pen in hand, a blank piece of paper, an envelope nearby, and time to write a good old fashioned handwritten letter…just to connect with someone?

That world almost seems like a different lifetime ago.  Perhaps it is something that has been lost in an age of iPhones, Apps, Social Media, and Skype.  Yes, in days gone by we had to take the time to write something, wait for the letter to arrive in the mail, and then wait for the reply.   Yes, our hands got tired using a pen for an extended period of time.  And yes, it wasn’t always easy to read people’s penmanship. 

But, I have to admit, it sure was a lot more fun when something arrived back! Perhaps the anticipation made it more special. And since it took more effort, we certainly took the time to read the letters we received (at least I like to think skimming wasn't invented back then). 

September is Letter Month at KJOL; and all last month, I was constantly reminded of the importance of the most important letter in the world…God’s Letter to us.

The Word is actually not just important in the life of the believer, it is vital.  And if you’re anything like me, you often forget the necessity of being connected to the Lord through His Word.  Sometimes in the hard times, I am too tired and weary to read the Bible.  In those times, sometimes, I simply don’t want to read it (how’s that for honesty).  And it is in those times I forget…I forget that the Lord cares, that the Lord has encouragement and beauty for me in His Word, and that there are wonderful benefits to the Light, Life, and Truth found in those pages….those very things I can use at every moment of my life.

The Christian Community has recently see several public instances of so called "falling away" by those who have forgotten the foundational truths of Scriptures; yet none of us are immune.

So this month, I want to encourage you to make the Word a central part of your existence.  It’s real…it’s relevant…and it refreshes.  God took the time to have it written down; and it’s a huge way that we can connect with Him and stay on the straight and narrow. 

And don’t forget, you can hear His Word often on KJOL…(I couldn’t resist)!
