Praiseworthy Books

Some of the best-selling books in romance publishing today are the Amish inspirational novels. Authors such as Beverly Lewis, Wanda Brunstetter and Cindy Woodsmall have written works that attract many readers even though they lack the graphic violence, profanity and other vulgarities that seem to permeate other novels. Perhaps the popularity of these books is indeed because they avoid these unwholesome activities.

Phil.4:8 says, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

I don’t think that God wants us to ignore or totally avoid the negative aspects of our society. He actually wants us to be the “salt and light” (Matt.5:13-16) that makes a positive difference in the world around us.

However, we have to be careful that the world doesn’t have a negative affect on us. One way to do this is to read wholesome books. Have you read any good books lately?
