The Letter You’re Writing

You are a letter from Christ.
    —2 Corinthians 3:3

President Ronald Reagan wrote regularly to his beloved Nancy when he was on the road or in the air. His successor in office, George H.W. Bush, was a prolific note-writer. My late friend Leonard Waggoner penned a poem to his wife Elizabeth every day.

In this age of email and texting, letter writing is becoming a lost art. That’s sad, for anyone who has combed through the possessions of a departed loved one has probably come across a packet of cherished letters. I have a box of letters my mother kept until the day she died; letters my father wrote to her when they were courting.

The apostle Paul said that followers of Jesus are “a letter from Christ.” Your Christ-centered life is a beautiful letter; don’t permit your writing of it to become a lost art.

The message of your life
will be cherished for generations.
