Welcome to Word Filled Wednesday...I am delighted to be your hostess today!
The purpose of Word filled Wednesday is to share God’s word (no famous quotes or other literature — only the beautiful Word of our God) through photo’s & a Bible verse!
MckLinky is below so you can join us.
This past weekend Grace, my 5-year old granddaughter, came over for a visit. After church, we decided to visit Barnes and Nobles. As soon as we entered, she eagerly asked me to take her to the children's section.
It wasn't long before she had chosen several books for Grammy to read to her. I pray her love for books and reading will be a lifelong passion that brings her ever closer to the Lord.
John Wesley once told his students, “Either read or get out of the ministry!” In prison Paul asked Timothy for “his books, especially the parchments” (2 Tim. 4:13 NAS). The parchments were his copies of the sacred scriptures.
Proverbs 15:14 says, “The discerning heart seeks knowledge.” So we find Paul still reading, still seeking wisdom, and still searching for truth until the day he was martyred.
J. I. Packer once wrote, “A little knowledge of God is worth much more than a great deal of knowledge about him.” Along these same lines, Hosea prophesied, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hos. 4:6).
What a tragedy it is that so many of our young people have turned away from the reading and study of God’s Word for the entertainment of video games and the Internet. We should pray that a hunger for truth will capture the hearts of this next generation, and they will come to be known as those who were seekers of wisdom and instructed of the Lord.
Lord please give us a hunger and desire to know more about you. Let our hearts be discerning as we seek to know you more.
