A biography, which is the story of someone’s life, lets us take a peek into another’s life. We can learn much from reading about others. God seemed to think it was very important also, because He included many life stories in the Bible—some long and some brief, but all for instruction. He knew that we could not only learn about these people, but we could also learn from their experiences. His intention is for us to learn about Him, and how He deals with people. There is an old adage which goes something like this: “The wise man learns from the mistakes of others; the foolish man makes the same mistakes.” Reading the right biographies can sometimes help us become wiser.
