Live and Write Godly Words

Dear friends,

 I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.  1 Peter 2:11-12  NIV 

Do you notice the tabloids screaming at you from racks while waiting in line at the grocery store? Did it entice you to buy the paper or magazine? Learning other’s secrets is very tempting. It’s a national pastime any more. The Brittany and Paris’s of the world don’t have a chance. Everyone knows who they are with, what they ate, how much money they have, and all the mistakes that they have ever made. How sad that our society gets away with bullying people in the name of news.

I always think how terrible for these poor people to have their personal lives plastered all over the news. These people are hounded day and night. When our own children make mistakes, we try to have them acknowledge it and our lives go on from there. It isn’t the same it you?

As writers, we can’t write one thing and live another. We need to let people who are still searching for, or need to find God in their life, see our deeds through our writing and in our lives as a glorification to God. We need to have mercy and compassion for the mistakes of others.

Lord, help us to kind to others with our words and to find the goodness in people to write about. Help us to write the word we live and live the words we write.
