So I'm doing my morning blog-run, and I pass by Sharper Iron. I see that there's an article on the interpretation of Ecclesiastes.
Now, at present I'm neither preaching nor teaching nor studying Ecclesiastes. But some day, I may well do so. What are the odds that I will remember, on that day, that there was an article on interpretation at Sharper Iron? Zero. But if the miraculous happened, then how long would it take me to find the article? Long.
Not with BibleWorks.
With BibleWorks, all I had to do was copy the URL, click-click over to Ecclesiastes 1:1, write "Sharper Iron did an article on the interpretation of Ecclesiastes," select part of that text, hit Ctrl+K to bring up the link popup, hit Ctrl+V to paste the URL, hit Enter — and that note is saved to that verse forever.
Brothers, how often does that happen with you? Answer: all the time. You think of an illustration of a verse, you have an observation on a verse or passage, you read a blog or hear a sermon or lecture shedding light — and you're struck by that wistful despair. You know, "That's great... I sure hope I remember that... but I know I won't."
BibleWorks solves that. It's fast and it's terrific. Honestly, my notes would be worth a good chunk of change. They're filled with links to journal articles, books, online resources; personal observations; quotations from authorities. And they'll be mine until the Lord returns or I die, appearing whenever I mouse-over the verse, instantly.
I've helped put BW in the hands of two other pastors that I can remember. If you're a church-member and your pastor doesn't have it, start now getting together a fund to buy it for your pastor for Christmas. He'll love it, and you'll profit. I just can't say enough good about it.
But I'll keep trying!
