As a college student I will never forget the words from Dr. Soto in a class that I was sitting in at Grace College. He said "the depth of your knowledge will be determined by the breadth of your library." I remember sitting in class and being convicted by that statement.
That truth is manifested over and over again everyday in ministry for me. If I want to continue to grow personally in my walk with God and lead from the front, I must be a life-long learner. I personally set goals each year in reading books and reading the Word of God. We must be intentional in growing or it won't happen.
I read all the time, books, journals, articles, blogs, magazines and listen to podcast, videos and people. I never want to get to a point where I feel like I have arrived.
So, as I have been prepping for this marriage series each week, I went to my library and pulled out books that I have already read and gleaned truth from them. Obviously the Bible is the standard and filter by which I measure these books. So I ask you today, what is your personal growth plan in your life? What are you reading and how are you planning to widen your knowledge?
You Need the Gospel Every Single Day - Christians never outgrow their need for the gospel. We need simple gospel truth every single day. Watch Now
