The great conversation

Image result for Great Conversations
I am so grateful for the gift of reading. I realise that some people don't like reading, but I count it a joy to read the thoughts and inspirations of many different authors. As Rene Descartes once observed, our reading opens up conversations with people we would never get to meet, but somehow we have a connection with them.
"The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest minds of past centuries." - Rene Descartes

It goes without saying that this is the same with the Scriptures. Reading the words of people like Solomon, David, Peter, Paul and Isaiah gives us a beautiful insight into their world and their understanding of faith.

As we read the Scriptures enjoy the conversation with the authors, but most especially, delight in speaking with the Lord.

2 Timothy 3:16 -  The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right.

Living in Grace
