a scribe’s scratchings: a log (3)

SCRIBES: Persons who can read and write. (Kim Paffenroth; Eerdman’s Dictionary of the Bible)

Not everyone can, you know.

As in, never could. Or, once could, but can’t now. Or, can do one, but not the other.

I am privileged, for I can do both.

And if I make use of that privilege, how will I use it?

Like everything else in my life and what I want my life to be about, I pray: to draw closer to God.

And that is the main reason I’ve decided to copy the entire Bible by hand.
