Write It Down!

Is it o.k. if I take a few minutes and harp on something?
God so values His word that He often commands those He is delivering it to, to write it down.  What do you tell yourself – if something’s important and you don’t want to forget it – what do you do, you write it down?  We document our marriage by writing it down on a license, our graduation on a diploma and the final wishes for our estate in a will. While each of these may be personally important to us, what can be more important to all of us than God’s eternal word? After all, it will outlast your marriage, your education and your estate.
Let’s look at this idea of writing it down in scripture – 
Exodus 17:14
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this on a scroll as something to be remembered and make sure that Joshua hears it, because I will completely blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven.”
Exodus 34:1
The Lord said to Moses, “Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.
Deuteronomy 6:6-9
6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.
7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Jeremiah 30:1-2
1 “This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord:
2 “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you.
Revelation 1:10-11
10 On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,
11 which said: “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.”
I hope you are getting my point – God esteems His Word and often commanded His leaders, Kings, Prophets and Priests to write it down! God’s word is to be esteemed and what we esteem, we approach with more than just a casual, cavalier attitude.
What we esteem, what we honor, we often, actually write it down.
