As I help Jodi love to read, I’ve been realizing the importance of encouraging her to value one Book in particular above all the others. I try in little ways now. Her favorite song of the moment is “The B-I-B-L-E”, and we read stories about Creation and Noah and baby Jesus. Oh, and she adores her babyfaith DVDs. But I’m sure it will grow harder as she gets older and more of the world starts vying for her attention. I know what a challenge it is for me to keep God’s Word as my favorite and most read book.
There are SO many books out there I want to read. And these days I struggle to find time to read anything that isn’t something for work or a children’s book. But there’s one Book that matters most. As Christians, let’s remind each other that everything we do should flow from our knowledge of, love for, and time spent in God’s Word. Let’s strive to be not just bookworms, but Bible-worms first of all. :)
I’m seeing my favorite band, Caedmon’s Call, tonight, and I’ll end with some lyrics from one of their wonderful songs. Have a fabulous weekend.
“We delight in the law of your Word
We delight in the Son who was perfect from birth
We delight in the day He's returning to earth
