What is the second most important book you own?
This article give the precisely perfect answer to that question!
What book is that? Your local church’s membership directory.
Now, before you roll your eyes and run off to read something else, give me a moment more of your time.
I believe it is the second most important book you own because it keeps before your eyes the brothers and sisters you are responsible to help to heaven. God has called you to help particular brothers and sisters to fight against sin. He has called you to stir up particular people to love and good works. He has called you to encourage particular people every day until it is no longer called today.
