Scribbling Scribes

What do you do for a living? Are you one of many who think your job is boring and useless? Are you one who writes at the behest of others? Then yes, we are called secretaries. Sometimes we are called something more high sounding like personal assistant to the president. This is generally a bigger title but no more extra cash in pocket.

Do not despair dear scribbler. The Bible considers your job to be important. Secretaries/ scribes are mentioned over one hundred times in the Bible. Just like us, those secretaries recorded, counted, translated and made appointments (and maybe even coffee!) for their superiors.

Luke was a doctor but also a secretary/scribe; he offers good advice for those of us who write on the behalf of others.

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. (Luke 1:3, AMP)

Prayer- Lord, we take pride in our job, no matter how humble. Amen.
