Blessed silence, a cup of coffee and God’s word are they highlight of my mornings. I love to read and as a Christian my favorite book is my
Centennial KJV Thompson® Chain-Reference® Bible.
I wanted a Bible that wouldn’t fall apart so I bought the full grain Morocco leather bound edition. To say that I’m particular about this book is an understatement. I’ve been accused of being obsessed but really, that’s not true. I want it to last the duration of my lifetime, so I take special care of this book.
I don’t write in it or highlight scripture. No, not even my name. I do not lick my finger before turning the pages. A task almost impossible. I dare you to try it at home. If I’m carrying another book with this one, my Bible always, always is on top of the stack. The pages are never bent, or whoever bent them will have to pray through. And heaven help me, if someone drops it. Hence the reason only responsible people are allowed the privilege, after they wash their hands.
While some might think my actions in the overprotective, I treasure the words written on the inside. They comfort, encourage and challenge me to become a better servant. My favorite book is God’s word in its simplicity, interpreted by the Holy Spirit, whispered to my soul without the confusing commentaries of men.
Thursday’s blog posts are my book recommendations. The Bible should be first and foremost on every reader’s to-be-read list. It’s one of those books you cherish and read over and over again.
