The pen is mightier than the sword. Written words are the clearest form of communication. They also are enduring. Visual communication and radio/audio communication has the danger of being able to be censored much more easily than written. As a case in point, even speeches and broadcasts are still read as quotes today.

Now, there is the caveat that biblically we are called to proclaim the Word, to preach the Gospel based on Romans 10. But even such a command undergirds the written word for what do we preach? The Word! What a gift that the Lord has given us—His written, unchanging, unalterable Word! What a treasure we hold, repeat and declare…even continue to share in writing through quoting in our letters, posts, memes, emails, business logos and more. Do you value The Written Word?
