Little By Little

I never understood why people would want to blog.  It seemed like too much work.  Yet over the past few months I’ve wanted a place where I could point people to interact with ideas.  Facebook isn’t a useful place for discussion.  It is often hard to be thoughtful in 140 characters or less on Twitter.  So I have given in to the idea I said I would never do.  I’ve decided to blog.

My wife is nervous.  If I’m grammatically incorrect on Twitter, how bad will it be on a blog?

I’m nervous.  What if I never write a second post?

My friends are nervous.  They are thinking, “Seriously, another outlet where we will be obligated to listen to you?”

Yet here we go.

Proverbs 13.11 says, “Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.”  Its a verse about money, but I think the principle is true in all things.  If we can consistently change our lives “little by little” it can make a big difference.

This blog will be the place in which I share what I’m learning and I interact with others who want to learn as well.  Don’t expect great insights.  I won’t expect a great response.  But “little by little” we can learn together.

    I can certainly understand the anxiety one feels when starting to blog. And then the comments come, and you realize you’ve made a difference in someone’s life, and that is a very cool thing. Thanks for this post, Kevin. It’s a great, thought-provoking one, and I look forward to many more. Here’s to a happy and healthy 2013.

      Thanks Linda. My blog will not also include a lengthy trek through the Appalachian Mountains.

    Pastor Kevin, Great Word…
    Little by Little we build friendships,
    We gain trust, we live our lives, and we
    Sow seed to those around us that do not
    Have a relationship with the Lord. If we
    Live Little by Little yet Praise Large we shall
    Be Blessed with Much, a little More
    Each day…(-: jeff
