Building a reading culture


By Pastor James Wanyonyi

All the points vertically spell ‘Breakthrough Family Chapel’.

Books: Books are ignorance cleansers. Books transport you from where you are to where you are supposed to be. The answers to life’s biggest questions lie in a book.

Reading: Reading is taking the best of many minds and pouring it all in my mind.

Expand your mind: Reading broadens your world. Every adventure begins with knowledge.

Awareness: Read what is in the area of your purpose and establishing an authority in your field.

Keeping reading: Reading keeps you current in a changing world. Your future is determined by the books you read and the friends you keep.

Think: You can’t think big with a small mind. Reading enlarges your thinking and knowledge.

Heal the soul: Reading is a remedy for the soul. Reading is the will of God.

Read the Bible. The books of Daniel 1:2 and 2nd Timothy 4:13 give divine approval to the culture of reading.

Options: For some a book is a means to an education, for others, it is a source of information but a book carries significance when you opt for it to be a form of transportation.

Understand why you need to read: Reading sharpens your mind and develops your skills further. Reading is exercising your mind.

Generations: Generational blessings begin with knowledge. Reading plays a part in acquisition of that knowledge.

Helper: Reading is my destiny helper. It will connect me to my much desired destiny.

Faith: God operates in my life to the level of my knowledge.

Analyse: Have time to look back at your reading, why you are reading, how often you read and what you read.

Motivation: Reading helps to keep you inspired, stimulated and motivated.

Implications: Reading has personal implications; the day I stop learning, is the day I start dying.

Leadership: Readers are leaders. Reading inculcates leadership qualities.

Your books: Lend your books to someone who will surely return them.

Create time: You develop and sustain a reading culture by dedicating time to it.

Have a record: The best way to keep track of what you have read or reading is to record it your benefit.

Age: Read books that are commensurate to your age. Books which will challenge and inspire you in your current and incoming season.

Pathway to greatness: Reading paves the way to your greatness.

Enlightenment: Knowledge is light and reading provides illumination.

Library: Build your own library. And that was Building a Reading Culture by Pst. James Wanyonyi
