Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
Carry your civilization, the Bible, with you today (or at least carry it off the end table) and read it. Don’t let God’s word be silent in your life or your faith may encounter a standstill.
And that from infancy you have known [the] sacred scriptures, which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:15-17 (NABRE)
