Parting Words From The WORD . . . Handling The WORD

As writers and speakers, it is our responsibility to learn, to prepare, and to be the best we can at whatever God has called us to be. At a time when good words are often twisted by wolves, we need to be sure that what we say is what He means.

Do we use verses out of context in order to prove a point?

Do we use good truths to rationalize poor choices?

This week’s verse is a good reminder that as we’re studying how to handle the writing of words, it is even more imperative that we learn how to correctly handle The WORD.

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

 I pray God’s blessing on the work of your hands and your hearts,

Vonda

  • As writers and speakers we have such a responsibility to handle God’s word accurately. An approved workman is also one who has gained skill and experience through doing the work. Blessings today, Friend!

    • You’re absolutely right, Ginger! Thanks for joining in!

  • Ohhh, yes, such a powerful reminder to stay True to our Calling.

    We need to write prayerfully so the Holy Spirit uses us rightly. His Word etched in our heart comes out in our life and work. This is the root of transformation.

    • Amen, sister! His Words and His Spirit are what count. Our opinions don’t matter…

  • Ruth Allender

    Amen!

    • Thanks for joining in, Ruth! Thanks for stopping by!

        Of course, Vonda. This reminded me that each ministry has its opportunity to be self-serving, whether as worship leaders or writers or anything that has a public face, even our corporate prayer. I appreciate so very much your admonition and encouragement to write from our communion with Him rather than our opinions that are so easy to confuse with what He actually said!

  • Thank you, Vonda, for this much needed reminder about our responsibility to handle the truth wisely and with discretion.

    A half a truth is the whole of a lie. If we are only one degree off the exact truth, we will be worlds away if we follow it long enough.

    • I love that last sentence you wrote: “If we are only one degree off the exact truth, we will be worlds away if we follow it long enough.” So true!
