Reading George Macdonald

You can learn most anything there is to know by reading. This is not a three dimensional knowledge and although useful it should never be a substitute for the teacher of experience but when reading is followed by doing the two make an excellent companions.

Words are the instructions the mind uses to move the body and must be wisely chosen by the spirit. They are programming for future action. Words have the ability to give life or to diminish life. I am always reminded of the best word's of all found in the greatest book of them all that encourage us to guard our hearts and think on these things.

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Proverbs 4:23

 Finally, brothers and sisters, 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.Philippians 4:8

Words written or spoken have tremendous power! Words written however have very special powers. They can live on long after the author's mouth has been silenced and can be revisited again and again!

With the fruit of a man's mouth his stomach will be full; the produce of his lips will be his in full measure. Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and those to whom it is dear will have its fruit for their food. Proverbs 18:20-21

George Macdonald is the tops for me outside of the Bible. The most wonderful thing is that  most of his writings are in the public domain!

Here is his book Gutta Percha Willie in Audio format.
