I suppose I ought to give up this little endeavor called blogging, seeing as how I have so little time for it. But if I did it wouldn't be for the reasons I have seen offered by others. One reason I keep at it (sort of), for an audience that I must assume is generally Chistian, is that it forces me, at least with some regularity, to consider the higher things, and thereby distracts me from the lower. I should be no better person for quitting entirely, but I might be worse. Should the audience change - which it cannot apart from my own choosing - the latter outcome would be a fact, not a possibility. It is the audience that gives me pause, keeps me honest, restrains intemperance, limits my field of vision, and thus protects me from myself. One must imagine that he is writing for one person, to whom he is loath to give offense, as if in that one the entire Body bore witness.
Well, it's something to strive for, anyway.
