The Dr. Seuss Quote for Today - Be Awesome . . .

The Dr. Seuss Quote for today is"Be awesome! Be a book nut!" I'm all for reading so I like this quote! Begin reading to children when they are young and continue to read to them and encourage them to read as they get older. 
Be sure you are a "book nut", too! Read books to help you grow in your walk with God and be a person who continues to learn. Of course, the Bible is absolutely a book you should be a "nut" about, too! II Timothy 2:15 tells us, "Make an effort to present yourself to God as a tried-and-true worker, who doesn’t need to be ashamed but is one who interprets the message of truth correctly." We need to spend time in God's Word so we are able to understand and interpret it correctly . . . what could be more "awesome"? God's Word is unlike any other book . . . Hebrews 4:12 tells us, "For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Reading the Bible helps us understand how God wants us to live . . . it is essential for us to be a "book nut" about the Bible if we are going to know and walk with God!

Be sure to point this out to the children in your ministry, too! Help them understand they can be a "book nut" about God's Word! Spend some time talking about their favorite verses and lead them in thanking God for giving us His Word so we can know and walk with Him! Be sure to take a moment to pray for each child by name - "Thank You God for loving _____ so much You gave him/her Your Word so he/she can know and walk with You! Please help him/her make every effort to be a tried-and-true worker who doesn't need to be ashemed, but who interprets Your Word correctly! Thank You, Amen!"
