“And the Lord answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it” (Habakkuk 2:2).Text — Habakkuk 2:1-3
An old Chinese proverb says that, “The faintest ink is more powerful than the strongest memory.” This literally means that it is easy to forget what is not written down. Therefore, write down what you think is important and never to over-estimate your memory because your memory is prone to forget things as time passes. Our text emphasizes the importance of note-taking as God Himself instructed Habakkuk to write down the vision He had revealed to him. A youth should arm him/herself with pen and paper while reading God’s word so that he/she can pen down any striking passage, especially during ‘quiet time.’ Likewise, youths should cultivate the habit of note-taking during classes and reading sessions.
You are not too young to have a diary to be recording important events. You are to jot down messages in the church and write notes at school for reference purposes. The Bible you are reading today would have been non-existent had the writers of the books of the Bible not written down the revelations they received from God.
Cultivate the habit of note-taking
Always put pen to paper.
Prayer for today
Lord, take away from me laziness in jotting down notes.
