Do You Love to Read ? You Should

One of the few things that our children share in common with my wife and I is a love of reading . Although I have no empirical evidence to support it, my theory is that a love of reading is the most crucial skill that one needs to acquire in school and nurture throughout one’s lifetime . Having said that, my observation as well as reputable surveys indicate that reading is on the decline . I read a survey recently that stated a significant percentage of adults do not read one book per year . I have wondered why that is so; our friend the internet, video games , tv , text messaging etc. Even so ,if one can come to view reading as a positive thing and not just a waste of time , the obstacles can be overcome . Remember, we dont always have to be doing something to be doing something . The scripture teaches us to be still and know . So, find a subject, find an author or two or three and consume that written word.

  1. The worst part is, we fill our lives with craziness and busyness. Being still, another struggle of mine. Sometimes I think, if I sit still, he might really look at me, or… worse yet, I might actually look at me. 🙂 Give me a book. 🙂

    Great post. sorry for the rant. Was it even relevant?
