Welcome to GOOD THOTS! To have access to this book is to have a rare treasure in your possession.–For there is probably not another volume in existence anywhere which contains the same wealth of true stories, inspiring poems, proverbs, quotations of great men and women of God, wit, wisdom and interesting incidents from the lives of the famous, as well as the unknown, as you will find here!
GOOD THOTS contains a priceless heritage of lessons and true-life experiences from many generations of dedicated Christians of the past. “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples, and are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the World are come.” — 1Corinthians 10:11.
GOOD THOTS is an Anecdote Book.–And what is an Anecdote? An Anecdote is a brief story describing an incident or event of unusual interest. It is told expressly to help illustrate a spiritual principle or truth, and therefore brings out a moral or a point. Anecdotes are much like the parables of the Bible, the short vivid stories that Jesus Himself frequently used when teaching.
The parables that Jesus told were all true stories which really happened, and likewise, so are the vast majority of the Anecdotes in the GOOD THOTS book; they are accounts of actual incidents that happened to men & women of all nationalities & from all walks of life, with the exception of a few what you might call moralistic “fables”, which have also been included because they humorously bring out some very important truth.
Most of the stories, anecdotes and poems in this book have their roots in the Bible, and many strive to give modern examples or applications of Biblical truths with which we are all familiar. It is, after all, the Bible which contains the most powerful and thought-provoking observations about human nature and life, and is therefore a constant source of fresh inspiration!–And it is God’s Word from which all great Godly men and women have drawn their strength and inspiration in the first place.
