I don't mind writing something if I'm giving a gift,though. I could see where having a short note from a godly man inside your Bible might be an encouragement. Only stay humble!
Aloha brother,

And a hearty to all that you have written. No harm in having your name embossed on your Bible, and no harm in writing a word of encouragement with a Scripture on the front of a believer's Bible.

Signing it, like a "celebrity", is what bothers me, and I'm extremely pleased that you see that.

Our whole emphasis should be on the Person of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ; and upon His Holy word.

John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
