Blogging and Great Bible Passages

I read Charles Spurgeon’s Morning By Morning devotion this morning and I was thinking again about blogging.

“He that watereth shall be watered also himself.” –Proverbs 11:25 We are here taught the great lesson, that to get, we must give; that to accumulate, we must scatter; that to make ourselves happy, we must make others happy; and that in order to become spiritually vigorous, we must seek the spiritual good of others. In watering others, we are ourselves watered.“

When I am blogging, Bible verses like this often come to mind and influence what I say or how I say it. Or how I respond to the comments. I guess there are about 20 Bible verses that keep looping in my mind. Many have something to do with publishing or giving away. Like Spurgeon’s verse this morning, and this one . . .

Andrew

Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name “Precious” :-)

  • maybe cliche here …
    but, blogging is a lot of storytelling. so, a verse that informs stories I tell has been Lamentations 3:22-23 :
    “the Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease. for His compassions never fail. they are new every morning.”
    you know, as a children’s pastor, I’m “forced” to think of stories to tell of God’s new compassions to me. telling stories can “force” us to search for content and in the process splendidly wake us up to newness we’ve been missing! I try and let this verse inform my blogs and my stories … and songs and prayers.
    thanks for doing that too!

  • for me it must be the story of the poor widow. ‘…for all of them have contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty…’

  • Imaging the Scriptures … thanks Andrew …

    Like many I have read Andrew Jones’ blog since I learned of it. He is great with visually imaging the Scriptures. Meditate on this one as it is especially pertinent in light of the goings on in Darfur and Niger….

  • that’s cool Andrew. Thank you for including Jules (and sponsoring her) in the Greenbelt. We would be very interested in your ‘book’. NorthBeach enjoys updates through us of the incredibles/Jones family. Your children have taught all of our three heaps and continue to do so. Blessing upon blessing.
