Blogging was how I preached as a young pastor without a pulpit or regular preaching role. The reverse problem isnow true as a professor, where sharing 8-12 times is not uncommon for a work week. I slowly stopped stopped blogging, but did I lose something in the process? There's something different about digesting and creating to share instead of just learning. I love the sermon prep studying and wrestling through the Bible as we searching for fresh revelation until something new clicks! It has a different impact from simply reading the Bible regularly. I miss spending more focused energy around one developed weekly fresh word from God.
Currently, as I cycle through a chapter of Proverbs each correlating day (Aug 31=Prov 31, Sept 1=Prov 1, Sept 2=Prov 2, etc.), here's an included verse that stood out to me tonight as I wrap this random blog up
"Knowledge begins with respect for the Lord..."
Proverbs 1:7 NCB
This blog isn't exciting and I might delete it, but it was a first step to me posting more regularly again! Have a great Labor Day, 2019!
