leaders read

There was a great article in today’s Wall Street Journal by Karl Rove entitled “Bush is a book lover” revealing a reading contest he and President Bush have had ongoing since 2005. As my friend and pastor Steve Sonderman likes to say, “Leaders read.”

I need to read more. It’s intellectually stimulating and spiritually engaging. You too? Think about how much time we allow ourselves to be bombarded each day by advertising on either radio or television. Let’s turn off the idiot box and turn on our minds. The world will be a better place because of it.

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to read 30 minutes a day. I’ll make time for this in the evenings after putting the kids down and before going to bed. How about you?
