Why I love having a Kindle
I am preaching through the book of James. Next week’s sermon will center on James 4:6 (NIV)
But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
A quick look on my Kindle reveals three books on the subject that look interesting:
- Humility, by Andrew Murray. $1. I already have this one.
- Humility: True Greatness C.J. Mahaney and Joshua Harris
- Humility: Peter Wagner
I bought the last one and read about a third of it before I went to bed last night. Whatever book I want delivered instantly so that I can read it right now. What a time to be alive.
I was writing a Sunday School lesson just now that included this verse:
“For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16 (NIV)
Sense I was working on my computer, I didn’t pick up my Kindle for this one. I just went to Amazon.com and did a search for “Mind of Christ.” T.W. Hunt’s book came up. I bought it and quoted liberally into the Sunday School lesson I was writing. I had it delivered to my computer where I can copy and paste from there.
One of the ways to make a Sunday School lesson great is to quote from great writers. T. W. Hunt qualifies. The Sunday School teachers who use my lesson that week will appreciate many of the quotes from T.W. Hunt. (By the way, if you would like a free trial for my lessons, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ) I often do this: buy a book for one particular lesson and quote liberally in that lesson. Again, I was able to buy this book instantly and have it delivered in 60 seconds, all from the comfort of my easy chair.
What a time to be alive!
