"Ezra… a ready scribe… had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel" (Ezra 7:6,10). "LORD, Thou hast heard the desire of the humble: Thou wilt prepare their heart" (Psalm 10:17). "He that winneth souls is wise" (Proverbs 11:30). "He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful… I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely" (Revelation 21:5,6).
God's school is in session today
For scribes who desire to hear
The truth that the Scriptures convey
That His Holy Spirit makes clear.
Like Ezra, whose heart was prepared
To seek, and to do, and to teach
The Law of the Lord he declared,
We likewise have souls we may reach.
Should not we be ready to write
The things that our Lord has made known
When Scripture has shed a new light
On marvelous truths He has shown?
O Lord, what a noble profession
You give as we take up the pen!
The school of the scribe is in session
Each day as we hear You again.
