Some Thoughts About the Newspaper

By A. W. Tozer


It hardly need be said that most of us are  not
selective enough in our reading.

I have often wondered how many square yards
of newsprint passes in front of the eyes of the
average civilized man in the course of a year.

Surely it must run into several acres; and I am
afraid our average reader does not realize a very
large crop on his acreage.

The best advice I have heard on this topic was
given by a Methodist minister.

He said, "Always read your newspaper standing up."

Henry David Thoreau also had a low view of the daily press.
Just before leaving the city for his now celebrated sojourn on
the banks of Walden Pond a friend asked him if he would like
to have a newspaper delivered to his cottage.
"No," replied Thoreau, "I have already seen a newspaper."

Yours in Christ,
Paul N. F.

I agree with the men above on the newspaper.
