As I began this week, the prospect of blogging struck me as a foul burden. For some reason the phrase 'feeding the monster' flashed across my semi-wakened consciousness.
Has it come to this? Blogging is now a beast to be placated?
I have over 60 draft posts in some state of readiness for publication. One of them is an outline for a 50 part series. There's stuff from my website I could post. There are many sermons I've yet to upload. There are quotes that have blown me away recently. But I can't be bothered with any of it. Who knows if this will see the light of day.
And blogging is freely entered into. It should not be like a career ladder whose first rung we eagerly grasped but whose upper reaches ensnare us. Blogging doesn't pay the bills. And it's not some covenanted relationship I've undertaken before the Lord or His people. Still - at times it feels like feeding the monster.
We are not held captive by foreign overlords. Our own desires enslave us.
