My Daily Bread – Got.Laziness? Poorness.Soon.Follows.I passed by the field of a sluggard, by the vineyard of a man lacking sense, and behold, it was all overgrown with thorns … A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man. A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. Great Literature. The Spirit of GOD uses the Word of GOD to change the people of GOD. How sweet are Your words . . . , sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Great Literature. The Spirit of GOD uses the Word of GOD to change the people of GOD.

How sweet are Your words . . . , sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103

Recently I came across an article describing what constitutes great literature. The author suggested that great literature “changes you. When you are done reading, you’re a different person.”

In that light, the Word of GOD will always be classified as great literature. Reading the Bible challenges us to be better. Stories of biblical heroes inspire us to be courageous and persevering. The wisdom and prophetic books warn of the danger of living by our fallen instincts. GOD spoke through various writers to pen life-changing psalms for our benefit. The teachings of JESUS shape our character to become more like Him. The writings of Paul orient our minds and lives to holy living. As the HOLY SPIRIT brings these Scriptures to our minds, they become powerful agents for change in our lives. 

LORD, thank You for Your Word and its powerful influence in my life.

Welcome to the joy of LOVEing great literature, especially the life-changing power of GOD’s Word! 

Great Literature


“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Proverbs 24:30-34 

I passed by the field of a sluggard, by the vineyard of a man lacking sense, and behold, it was all overgrown with thorns; the ground was covered with nettles, and its stone wall was broken down. Then I saw and considered it; I looked and received instruction. A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man.
