Priority #1 – Spiritual HealthGoal Setting & Reflection Date
I need to always be reading one life giving book focused on growing in my relationship with God. Specifically, I need to develop a process for identifying great books to read.
Thoughts – UPDATED
I spent a couple weeks after setting this goal looking through my library of books at home, doing some internet searches, and getting book suggestions from others.
Nothing peaked my interest until I came across a book I read years ago in college – The Pursuit Of Godby A.W. Tozer. Apart from the Bible this is the most influential book I have ever read.
I was excited because he has written many books of the exact type I am looking for. I want to grow in my relationship with God. There are few people write about this topic more passionately and profoundly than Tozer.
After browsing through all of his books I selected Man: The Dwelling Place of God by A. W. Tozer as the next book I will read to supplement my Bible reading. As an added bonus the Kindle version of this book was only $.99 on Amazon.
The first paragraph of the Introduction to this book is fantastic and I want to share it with you below.
Thoughts – ORIGINAL
I’ve been reading through the entire Bible over the last couple of years which has been a great use of my time. But I also want to supplement that reading with literature focused on nurturing my personal relationship with Him.
