A Bad Book
A bad book is a big thief! For it robs a man of his time, and of his good principles. Many young people have been ruined by the vile literature which is now so common. A German writer says, "Such books rob the public of time, money, and the attention which ought properly to belong to good literature with noble aims. Of bad books, we can never read too little; of the good books, never too much."
Books should conduce to one of these four ends: for wisdom, for piety, for delight, or for usefulness.

Romans 12:9 ... Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
Psalm 16:8 ... I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
Philippians 4:8 ... Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.❤
