“Give yourself unto reading. The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains, proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read.
. . .
We are quite persuaded that the very best way for you to be spending your leisure time, is to be either reading or praying. You may get much instruction from books which afterwards you may use as a true weapon in your Lord and Master’s service. Paul cries, “Bring the books” — join in the cry.” -― Charles H. Spurgeon
As of late I have been reading about Charles Spurgeon and I am simply amazed at how God used him and how well read he was. His library contained over 12,000 books and commentaries. He was a man that never grew content, but challenged himself to read authors that were thought provoking and pointed to Jesus. Through this I am encouraged to never grow weary or lazy in reading and learning from other men of the faith. My soul has been refreshed to continue my education by filling my time with reading more scripture and diving into others peoples experiences of God through the literature they have wrote and how God has revealed himself through there life experiences. In deed leaders are readers and I have a renewed passion to learn. How about you?
