Librarians Devotional

“Instruct a wise man, and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.” Proverbs 9:9


What is your favorite book (or story)? Why?
What does the word “creativity” mean? What does “imagination” mean? Is it good to be creative and to have a big imagination?
Yes! Having a big imagination helps you to be creative, to think outside the box, and to solve problems. Reading is a great way to broaden your imagination - you can visit new worlds and all kinds of people and you can see things through another person’s perspective. Reading helps you think in new ways.
Librarians are a lot like teachers, they help us grow and learn about things that interest us. They share their passion - books - with us, encouraging us to learn more about the things we are passionate about.
This is a small picture of how our life with Jesus should be. When you really love something, you don’t hide it. You tell everyone. Just like a librarian teaches us about reading so we can grow smarter, we should share Christ with others so they can learn more about him.
Pray for your local librarians
  • Dear God…
    • Thanks: take a moment to thank God for books and the ability to read and grow and learn - and also for people who are willing to help teach you.
    • Please: ask God to take care of librarians to encourage them and give them creativity and patience.
    • Help me: what are ways that you can be a blessing to those who help teach you?
