Commenting on 2 Timothy 4:13, where Paul asks Timothy to bring him a cloak, books, and the parchments, Charles Spurgeon wrote the following words:
“He is inspired, yet he wants books! He has been preaching at least for thirty years, yet he wants books! He has seen the Lord, yet he wants books! He has had a wider experience than most men, yet he wants books! He has been caught up into the third heaven, and has heard things which it is unlawful to utter, yet he wants books! He has written the major part of the New Testament, yet he wants books!”
Do you want books?
“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.”—Proverbs 4:7
Books, Books, Books, I love to read. Especially something that brings insight.
