Props for Journaling

Dr. Shawn Wright, commenting on Augustine’s prolific writing, and somewhat paraphrasing Augustine himself, says, “he learned as he wrote.”  The implication is that writing (or typing) causes us to think, to codify, to systematize, to formulate arguments, to determine answers, in a word, to learn.  I would also say, speaking personally, that it internalizes what is aimed at; the thing meditated upon in such a manner is not only scribed upon the page, but often, by God’s help, upon the heart.  Here, then, is an exhortation to think about and write down what one gleans from God’s Word.
