Read More Books!

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you probably realize that I am an avid reader.  I read a lot, and I read eclectically — I read theology, biographies and memoirs,  novels, and poetry.  I’m interested in the brain, spiritual disciplines, autism, leadership, creativity, spiritual gifts and more.  My children say they rarely see me without a book in my hand.  I’m convinced that reading not only educates you, it makes you a better person, because you learn about the feelings and experiences of others.

Right now I’m working on a bulletin board at our church that will deal with lifelong learning, and books in particular.  Martin Luther wrote over 600 books and here are some of the things he had to say about the subject:

“There never yet have been, nor are there now, too many good books.” 

Martin Luther

One Book is enough, but a thousand books is not too many.”       

Martin Luther

“Every book is a great action, and every great action is a book.”

Martin Luther

So my message today is simple:  MAKE MARTIN LUTHER PROUD!  READ MORE BOOKS!
