Read for Your Soul

As someone who often values quantity over quality when it comes to reading — somebody who cares more about reading 25 above average books in a year than 10 great ones — this spoke to me (and my pride).

Let me close with a caution: Beware of reading for quantity to impress anyone. Read for your soul. If we could live a thousand years, and experience a thousand relationships in the thousand times and places and cultures, perhaps we wouldn’t need books in order to (eventually) become wise. But our lives are short, and God has been merciful to give us many places, many times, many cultures, and many experiences distilled into books.

Find the ones that strengthen your faith and make you want to live all-out for God. [DG]
