You need to be familiar with the story of Esther in the Book of Esther, but this is what I think of those who mark up and write in their Holy Bible.
Esther is before the King unbidden. The King extends his golden scepter so that she might live. She takes the scepter from his hand, then she spray paints it in neon colors, sprinkles some glitter on it, and ties a few feathers on the end.
Meanwhile. . . I wonder, what the King is thinking?
My final thought: if you like to take notes or want to memorize scripture, invest in a notebook or flash cards.
