Read as an act of worship.

(by Joel Beeke)

Read as an act of worship. Read to be elevated
into the great truths of God. Be selective about
what you read, however. Measure all your reading
against the touchstone of the Scripture. So much
of today's literature is froth. Time is too precious
to waste on nonsense. Read more for eternity than
time, more for spiritual growth than professional

Before picking up a book, ask yourself--"Would
Christ approve of this book? Will it increase my
love for the Word of God, help me conquer sin,
offer abiding wisdom, prepare me for the life to
come? Or could I better spend time reading
another book?"
