What do we spend our spare moments reading? How many of us have read God’s word from cover to cover? How many of us just read the few lines offered in our daily devotionals?
I requested the autobiography of an old time movie actress from the library, only to discover that the volume was at least four inches thick! It’s almost the size of a pulpit Bible and certainly two –three times the size of any I’ve ever owned. I can barely pick it up, let alone hold and read it.
There is no way this person had a bigger life than God’s! I returned it…unread.
Perhaps we need to rethink our reading plans.
“Good is the enemy of best.” Oswald Chambers
“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” John D. Rockefeller
Have you ever read this line?
You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) (Ephesians 5:8-9, NIV)
What kind of light are we? The information we put in us is the kind of information that comes out of us. What are you reading?
Prayer-Father God put the right reading for us, in front of our faces and when the good from that is in us, let it shine without us. Amen.
