Your Highness, Do You Read?

Literacy has been called the “national disease” because of the far reach of consequences on the entire nation when one person cannot read. One illiterate person increases the cost burden for everyone else because concessions are created to convey messages in other ways, like pictures. The inability to read affects the cost of emergency room (ER) treatment because the illiterate person cannot read labels medications like Tylenol to treat conditions at home. We all pay when a person cannot read.

Now, let’s get spiritual. How many circus acts (hoops of fire, tricks, and magic) must the church create to reach the believer who does not read the Bible? We want to “spice up” or “make interesting” the Truth. But, at what expense? Consider Proverbs 4:7 (NIV84).

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.

God commands personal study (2 Timothy 2:15) and public reading (1 Timothy 4:13). Our calling’s value is rooted in the ability to read, receive, and then believe the Word of God. Like it or not, you and I are leaders. Others watch us, imitate us, regard us and respect our Christian walk. Wisdom and understanding are our goals. Let’s remember and encourage each other in our call to know Him and lead others to Him.

My dear Kingdom Queens, reading. is. fundamental.

Selah, and love to all.
