To Christians, about writing
In the multitude of words there lacks not sin: but he who refrains his lips is wise. Proverbs 10:19
For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words. Qoheleh/Ecclesiastes 5:3
He that has knowledge spares his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. Proverbs 17:27
Apostle John was probably the nearest-to-God and wisest among the 12 apostles.
Yet he did not write much. Of all his writings, we only have Gospel of John, I John, II John, III John, and Revelations.
These are few words compared to the verbose writings of modern people, yet how much Christ-life is carried in these words. There are modern people who write entire books, yet in front of God they are less than a few paragraphs of Apostle John’s writings.
Therefore, when you write, seek not to write many words.
Seek rather to write few words that carry much Christ-life in them.
And if unclear on what to write, then do not write until you pray and receive wisdom from God.
And for Christians who write: sometimes one writing is sufficient for many days.
The neater and truer teachings about Christian life are from the teachers of the past, when people were yet unpolluted by modern entertainment.
Also, when you advance in wisdom nearer to God, so should you correct your previous works, so that all your works are found acceptable by God.
It is beneficial to always change to resemble God more and more, for the purpose of attaining perfection in Christ: how things should be.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are ahead,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
2 Corinthians 6:17-18
