Fridays are for Writing: {Competence}

I love to give writing prompts because it's simply astonishing what people can come up with in response to a topic. It's as if we have so much creativity swimming around in our brains, and all we need is some time, a topic, and either paper/pen or keyboard/screen to get it onto the canvass of display.

So, first off - let's make sure we're using as many colors on our palette as we can, to get the brightest hues onto this canvass of words. (a.k.a. - vocabulary boost)


the quality of being fecundcapacity, especially in female animals, of producing young in great numbers.
fruitfulness or fertility, as of the earth.
the capacity of abundant production: fecundity of imagination.

And now - our prompt for the day, straight from my Bible reading this morning:

Spend 15 minutes freewriting a poem, article, short story, or prose about the following - the relationship between competence and confidence.  For added inspiration, see the following verse:

"Such confidence as this is ours through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God." - 2 Corinthians 3:4-5 (NIV)

Please paste your response into the comments section below, or simply a link to your blog if you post it there. I can't wait to see your colorful thoughts displayed in your words! p.s. extra credit if you can use the vocabulary word in your freewrite...

Lord, would You glorify Yourself through us as we write for You today. Amen

"I think it is wrong not to want to influence people when you write" -John Piper
