Insight and inspiration don’t come in even doses. A veteran pastor, when speaking of preaching, told me long ago: “Sometimes you have something to say; sometimes you have to say something.”

Writing editorials, blogs, etc. is the same way. There are times when the words flow freely — and times when you search for the logjam in your mind.

Such is the end of this week after finally submitting the last article for the next issue of Baptists Today. My think tank is on low.

We’ve all been told: “If you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all.”

Some good additional advice may be: If you can’t say something wise — use as few words as possible to get by.

(Now get off the computer and get some exercise.)
