If you’ve read the blog post – Social Media you may find yourself with a renewed interest in books and other activities that you enjoyed before the smartphone takeover.
Randy Alcorn recently wrote about why we should be reading more. He gives a little challenge that I hope you will decide to try.
“PLEASE turn off the television and open a great book and begin to read. Tell yourself you will read a minimum of ten minutes before watching something or looking at a device. I guarantee you that if you do this every day, some days you will never turn on the TV. An hour or two will go by and you’ll realize how much better reading is than watching.” – Randy Alcorn

Bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas when you come—and the books, especially the parchments. – Paul
– 2 Timothy 4:13
We are quite persuaded that the very best way for you to be spending your leisure time, is to be either reading or praying. You may get much instruction from books which afterward you may use as a true weapon in your Lord and Master’s service. Paul cries, “Bring the books” — join in the cry.
– Charles Spurgeon
Bring The Books!
