IF THERE is sny on thing, from a
human standpoint, the men of this
country need more than any other, it
is the hshit of daily Bible reading
Get a King James version of the Bi

Revised edition, and read one or two
chapters every day. You will witness
a marvelous change in your own con

self, in your influence and power
over your friends, your employees
and your business. A large amount
of the present restlessness of today,
mentally, phy&ically and socially, can
be attributed to the lack of Bible

The Bible is supernatural. Do not
read it in a careless, superficial man

the Pentateuch and the four Gospels
together. Read Daniel and Revela

the Book of John every month. Read
the Little Book of Colossians every
Read the Epistles. They are the
guides and safeties for the present,
everyday Christian. Forget the trash
of the papers; forget the funnies and
foolishness of the daily press.
The most up-to-date book in the
world is the Bible. Read it, study it,
meditate upon its teachings and you
will become a stronger man, physical
