Man labors while God breathes

To collect our thoughts in written form in order to provide knowledge, insight, correction, instruction or even humor in a logical manner, mankind must labor!

Forethought and hindsight and distractions factor greatly upon the human mind while writing. Anxiety pursues, and frustrations can leap off the page faster than words.

Editing and revisions are common place for even the most casual piece of literature. Correction strips, white-out, erasers and the backspace key constitute a circle of friends that are most appreciated.

And yet, to accomplish the very thing we wrestle for, and so much more, all God does is breathe:

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,” (2 Timothy 3:16 ESV)

From stone-tablets to mobile-devices, the word of God has prevailed and it will continue to do so because it expires without an expiration date.

And moreover, because the Preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yes, he pondered and sought out and set in order many proverbs. The Preacher sought to find acceptable words; and what was written was upright—words of truth. The words of the wise are like goads, and the words of scholars are like well-driven nails, given by one Shepherd. And further, my son, be admonished by these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is wearisome to the flesh. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” (Ecclesiastes 12:9-14 NKJV)

For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding;” (Proverbs 2:6 NKJV)
