Are you a writer? Are you also a Believer? Why do you write? For yourself, for ministry or for business?
Well, when I started writing, it was for me. For fun, for necessity and for therapy. Writing was my passion and my release of thoughts and feelings. But, I've always loved teaching and talking about God. So, naturally, I graduated to using my writings to teach others...or to share what I was learning from God with others. It soon became Ministry.
Now, my primary purpose in writing is for Ministry, even though I still write for myself, my fun, amusement and therapy. However, since last year, an avenue for Business opened up with Blogging and becoming an Author. I realised that I couldn't just do things the way I had always done them. If I was to grow in reach and influence, I needed to be strategic. I need to apply business sense to this Ministry I have been given, to grow it like a good steward.
This has been a challenge, because I have never really been business oriented. I have usually been more charitable in my mind when it comes to money. Plus, there is a real conflict with ministry and money that one must resolve and daily address, so that greed doesn't become the motivation for writing, and money remains a tool of ministry and not a reward... .
So, right now, I write for all three reasons, with Ministry being my chief reason for being a Writer. What or whom do you write for, and why?
