A Word For Writers

The Mobile Office: a #devotional for #writers with Word Wise at Nonprofit Copywriter #WritingTips #FreelanceWriting

Working from a mobile office is no longer the exception. Prior to 2020, just one in five employees used a remote office to work from home. By the end of 2020, 71% of those workers used a mobile or home office all or most of the time – largely because of the coronavirus pandemic.  And more than half (54%) say they’d like to keep their mobile office long term, according to Pew Research.

The hero that makes possible today’s remote office? Technology, such as online access and video conferencing.

“Technology affords us the ability to get the same job done, no matter where in the world we are,” says Blue Fountain Media HR director Samantha Lambert. “The mobile office enables us to be in contact with co-workers or clients at any time." 

The Apostle Paul worked remotely, too. He moved from place to place across the Mediterranean, planting churches. Paul’s mobility allowed him to share the gospel with more people while continuing to teach by mail all of those who already had embraced Jesus.

The heroes that made it possible for Paul to work remotely? Friends and family who delivered his letters to churches and individuals. Paul dispatched private communications with those who were traveling in the same direction as his recipients. Tychicus, for instance, delivered letters from Paul to the church at Ephesus and the church at Colossae.

Writers have been be mobile through the ages thanks to both partners and tools. And mobility extends our reach.

A mobile office extends your reach.

A Word To Pray

Heavenly Father,

You are able to work in and through us throughout the centuries to spread your Word. Thank you for today’s technology. You allow me to be mobile as I work. Show me how to use that opportunity as you direct.

In Jesus’s name, Amen.
