You Don’t Have to Be a Writer

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a great read. This historically true novel documents the German occupation of the Guernsey Islands during World War 2.  Read it and tell me what you think!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society resembles the Bible in many ways. Both the Bible and the novel are historically true. Both are made up of a series of letters. Finally, all the authors must be surprised at the success of their particular venue.

Did you know that the Bible authors did not think of themselves as writers? Matthew was a tax collector, Mark the rich kid on the block and Luke a doctor. They just wanted to document their life with Jesus.

You have a life. Are you documenting it? Will your children know who you were, what you did or what you believe? Anybody can keep a journal. I’m pretty sure our notes won’t make it into the Bible, but they’ll be a best seller, at least in our families. (P.S.about the Bible?  Read it and tell me what you think!)

With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught. (Luke 1:3-4, NIV)

Prayer- Lord, thank you for a life worth living and worth documenting for others. In Christ. Amen
