We can distress With negative books, Drift without books, Or progress With positive books.
A car won’t go.
Without uplifting words
Hope won’t grow.
What you read matters. It has consequences in your life for good or bad. Books can lead you where you need to go, distract you with a show, or mislead you and leave you low. A reader’s choice is important.
What you read shapes you into its image. If you want your life to be better, read better material and read it a lot.
Read well. Read books that make you better, not books that enfetter. Everyday read something that encourages you and makes you feel good about life.
Too many people read without discernment. They treat a book like online “terms and conditions.” Instead of reading it with thoughtfulness, they just click “I agree,” and accept whatever it says.
Your mind, your choice! Don’t let books fill your mind with acidic thoughts.
Uplifting words are waiting to fill you with hope and peace, but you have to find them. Read what lifts you up, not what weighs you down. When you let a hope-filled book burn in your heart, you’re forever changed by its light.
Books have introduced me to some of my best friends, many of whom lived long ago. I like to read what inspires and encourages me, not what distresses and depresses me. The more I read hope-filled books, the better I feel!
