A Love for Reading
“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you.” – Anne Lamott
I remember the days when we used to go to our local library and borrow as much as 30 books in a single transaction. Our kids were exposed to so much library resources and best of all, they’re free! I enjoy every bit of time spent reading our borrowed books wherever we find it comfy to read.
But among all the books that we’ve ever read, about to read and cherished to read over and over, there’s one that stands the test of time. It’s the most precious of all, the Bible, simply because it is the written word of God. No matter how many times you’ve read it, there’s still so much to know, learn and understand. You will find yourself gaining not only knowledge but wisdom. And if you get deeper, it could change you.
Here’s why. “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12
