Books, etc.

With a baby shower in two days, graduation coming in less than two weeks, a baby coming in less than two months, I am in a cleaning mode. I have spent the last 60 minutes sorting through hundreds of books in my garage–which I call my class C books–trying to minimize the inevitable pain of moving one day. I was struck by how many books I have gathered over the years that are totally useless. They range from fantasy fiction to 16th century art. I don’t know why I thought I would one day ever be interested in such subjects. What I do find as I grow older is that life does not afford you the time to master too many subjects. In the last three months I have limited myself to buying very specific books that will aid me in my calling as a pastor and as a student of the Word. I confess getting rid of about fifty books had a satisfying effect on me.
