A word to the wise

“…of the writing of books there is no end 
and excessive devotion to books is wearying to the body.”
– Ecclesiastes 12:12

I heard this on the radio this morning and it humored me, so I decided to share.

    It’s pretty wearying banging a keyboard. Imagine dipping a quill onto papyrus or carving words onto stone tablets!

    Thanks for sharing.

    It made me chuckle. Wearying to the body–yeah. I had to laugh because of my lack of exercise since I started writing.

    I could go on and on about this as I have often contemplated this chapter and verse and studied the Masoretic text and the Septuagint. But I’ll spare you the sermon. :c).

    It does get you thinking through doesn’t it–Especially as a writer!

      No joke! And when I said it humored me, I didn’t think it was “funny” as much as it sort of delighted me that the Bible has something to say about books!

      BTW, I’d like to hear the sermon…
