The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

”The elder, 

To the lady chosen by God and to her children, whom I love in the truth—and not I only, but also all who know the truth—“

—‭‭‭2 John‬ ‭1‬ 

On March 7, 1777, future-President John Adams remarkably exchanged five (5) letters with his wife, Abigail, in one day. Historians estimate the two wrote each other at least 1,160 times over the course of their 54 years of marriage. They discussed everything from romance, to politics, to military strategy.

Something we forget about the Bible is that it didn’t just magically fall from the sky one day. God spoke the words, then men wrote it down. The Lord used men who journaled, documented, archived, mailed, censused, wrote poetry, wrote songs, and wrote instruction manuals (See Ark or tabernacle). He used men just like John the Elder.

Do the same today. The easiest way I do this is by texting men I call my “Foxhole Allies.” These are guys I am walking in victory, freedom, and contentment with everyday over pornography & masturbation. Every morning, I share the Best Verse of my Quiet Time with them. I may share today’s DBO. I may let them know I’m praying for them, or that I’m grateful for them.

Daily Battle Order:

Write. Write. Write.

Text your Best Verse to your wife and Foxhole Allies. Forward today’s DBO. Share your prayers with them. Tell them you’re grateful for them. Text your wife you love her, and that she’s beautiful.

One last thing: If you don’t already journal your Quiet Times, I encourage you to. It forces your brain (and consequently, your heart) to process & meditate on God’s Word more carefully.

“The pen is mightier than the sword.”

—Edward Bulwer-Lytton
