Why Read - Here is a thought I read from the book Spiritual leadership by J Oswald Sanders. The purpose of reading is vital to our personal growth. If the reason I read is to show off my knowledge, I will end up with a swollen head, unable to connect with people as I am focused on impressing them. The Bible says it's beautifully - Knowledge puff up, but love edifies (builds up). May my purpose of reading be inspiration, to grow in knowledge, analytical abilities and develop different perspectives. This will help me to mature as a person and relate with people in a much better way.
