Today is National Pen Pal Day

Few things make a person feel loved as receiving a hand-written letter, card, or postcard. The time it takes to write out your thoughts and feelings about a person shows they are of great value. When was the last time you received a hand-written message from someone who loves you?

Today we correspond constantly via the telephone, text messages, social media, and email. It is so easy to act or react to these digital messages without thought, and with words and responses that are as shallow as the emotions behind them. This is fine since many of the people we are reaching out to or responding to we have never met, nor are we likely to meet in person.

It is important that we be the lights of this world as God intended. To do this, it is important that we take the time to remind people they are the most precious assets this world has. The following Bible texts come to mind regarding this message.

  • 1 Samuel 30:26, 27, 31 CJB - 26 When David came to Ziklag, he sent some of the spoil to the leaders of Y’hudah who were his friends with a note, “Here is a present for you from the spoil of the enemies of Adonai.” 27 He sent such gifts... 31 to those in Hevron, and to all the places where David and his men had frequently visited.

  • John 8:12 - Yeshua spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light which gives life.”

  • 1 Corinthians 13:13 - But for now, three things last — trust, hope, love; and the greatest of these is love.

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:10 - But since we belong to the day, let us stay sober, putting on trust and love as a breastplate and the hope of being delivered as a helmet.

My prayer is that you take a moment today, sit down, and put onto paper the words you have in your heart for another person. I can guarantee when you drop it in the mail or deliver it to them that God is moving through you in that act and a blessing will return to you.

We were created by a God of communication, a God of relationships, a God of truth. Be true to yourself about what is in your heart, and be truthful to those divine appointments God has placed in your life. Honesty is the conduit for true healing.

Every blessing to you by grace through faith,

Tamara Ruckdeschel
