Once you have read a book you care about, some part of it is always with you. (Louis L’Amour, 20th-century novelist)

In spite of the ever-present TV and too many kinds of social media, books may still play an important role in our learning and entertainment. Many of us have experienced exactly what L’Amour talks about. We can often re-create a scene vividly and sometimes quote exact lines from a novel we’ve enjoyed. It is important, then, that we choose our reading material well.

Until I get there, focus on reading the Scriptures to the church, encouraging the believers, and teaching them. (1 Timothy 4:13)
