So…much…information. So many words. Whatever you want, it’s out there. After a bit of searching and some perseverance, you’ll find what you’re looking for: instructions, images, insight.
As a writer I ask: Do I have the words you want? How will you know until I give them to you? And after you have them, you don’t need to pay me, you have what you came for. It’s the information age. Information comes cheap. Everybody will offer it to you. Take it and go.
Even if my words are good or helpful or wise, they are free. Their worth comes from what you do with them.
- take them to heart
- apply them
- be entertained by them
- share them
- sit with and make more of them
And I have no control over this. Now, my words are yours. You “pay me” by:
- coming back to read
- subscribing to the blog
- referring me to a friend
- bookmarking me
- “liking” me on facebook
You pay me by taking action on my words. And I will never know it. It’s a pay-it-forward kind of economy. A give and take and give away.
I work for less than minimum wage. And yet more than anyone knows, except the One who knows all hearts, sees all things, and has His own system of accounting.
I pray that the words of my keyboard and the meditations of our hearts might be acceptable to You, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. ~ Psalm 19:14
