Ink is a good thing. Without it, books would be nonexistent. We couldn’t print photos of our grandactives. We couldn’t write notes and pass them in class. Oh wait! That was a bazillion years ago when I went to school. Okay, so text messages have replaced ink there. But technology has a long way to go before totally obliterating ink.
The Chinese used ink in the 23rd century BC. And the liquid has been an important commodity ever since.
But that’s not why I’m thankful for ink. I’m thankful for ink because prophets used it to record God’s word, and scribes painstakingly preserved it throughout history.
“Then the Lord replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it” (Habakkuk 2:2).
How about you? What are you thankful for that begins with the letter I?
See you in a twinkling,
