what is the purpose in reading, and in writing even?
It wont eternally save lives, either of them.
So, why do I bother?
I could be spending the time in other things.
In worthwhile pursuits.
Like Bible study
Like love and encouragement
Like cooking, or cleaning, or spending time with someone who needs it.
Reading takes time.
Writing takes time.
(and I'm not writing an allegory.
or a novel that's explicitly Christian
that could save lives eventually. maybe.
But I'm not)
Time that could have and should have
time that ought to have
been spent doing something worthwhile.
So, how do I justify those things?
And how do you?
