Our passage from the Word of God today is Philippians 4:8 which reads: "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."

Our quote today is from Karen Swallow Prior. She said: "Reading good literature helps us to fulfill the exhortation of Philippians 4:8...The canon of literature is literature of good report. Good literature is praiseworthy for the truth it contains, even if those truths are hard, as is often the case."
