How many of us still read?
Come on let’s be honest now. I’m not talking about reading on social media; I’m talking about taking time out of our busy schedules to sit down with a book and read.
Do any of us still read to our kids at night before they go to bed or do we just let them watch TV until they fall asleep?
Life as we know it has become so convenient that it has actually made us lazy.
Does anyone actually still go to the library? And no I am not talking about the school children because most of them are forced to be there for research purposes; I am talking about us as adults.
Many of us have become so addicted to technology that when the electricity goes off we become bored and we don’t know what to do with ourselves when in fact there are so many other things we can do without the use of technology.
Reading is so important because it broadens one’s knowledge. It doesn’t limit us to the things we already know.
I have to admit that I am not much of a reader, but I have found that when I am in need of wisdom, reading definitely helps.
I have found that knowledge is indeed power and without it we lack wisdom.
Reading helps us in school, in our spirituality, in our sexuality, in our love lives, when we are hurt etc.
There are so many books out there filled with wisdom, waiting for us to feed on it.
To be honest, I think most of us have actually forgotten how powerful reading is and how much wisdom is actually gained from it.
The Bible says my people shall perish through their lack of knowledge. This doesn’t only refer to us not knowing the Bible but it also refers to us going through life being lazy and not educating ourselves with what’s been given to us.
If we don’t read, we cannot grow and without growth we stay stagnant. Is that really what we want?
Stay true to yourself.
