Hello faithful reader! It brings me joy to present to you this volume of wisdom from ages past. During the first few years of my “new life” I developed a strong love for History. It is, in my opinion, one of the most important subjects that one can study.
Only in the pages of History can one find not only the tragedies that took place throughout the centuries, but also the choices that brought those events about. If you delve deeply into these matters, you can’t help but reflect upon the mistakes and bad choices you have made in your own life. We all make bad decisions that sometimes result in tragic events. All of our fingertips have darkened the pages of our own personal stories with the stains of remorse. We are not alone in that aspect of life.
On the other hand, however, we can’t help but notice the dazzling displays of courage and righteousness that color the cycle of time like fireworks bursting in the night sky. We too can emulate these displays. If we can learn how to harness the knowledge and wisdom that our predecessors possessed, and put it into action, we too can make the night sky burst forth with wonders of achievement. But how do we do this?
I believe Malachi 3:16 holds the key. God says here, “Then those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in His presence concerning those who feared the Lord and honored His name.”
These are tremendously powerful words that I hope will come alive for you throughout this reading. At the center of this magnificent verse we find a “scroll of remembrance,” which shows us just how important our History truly is. If we want God to remember us, we surely must remember Him and His servants throughout the ages. Notice, this scroll of remembrance is about those who honor and fear the Lord.
It is our duty not only to God, but to ourselves, our families, our neighborhoods, and the world itself, to reach back into the pages of History and learn what worked, and also what didn’t. Let us emulate the good, and discard the evil.
In the following chapters, you will find forty quotes from some of the greatest key figures throughout all time. With each quote, you will also find a fitting Bible verse, along with a brief reflection. I recommend reading one per sitting, and let the words take root in your minds. It is my utmost hope that you find great fulfillment, inspiration, and courage from these valiant men and women.
May each turning page bring you a new goal, a new strength, and a new passion. Open up your mind, and let the voice of History speak. I am positive its words will resonate in your soul, and plant seeds of life altering goodness. May God bless you all, and may your days be filled with peace, joy, and true success.
