“Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine,” —Proverbs 3:9-10. All that we have belongs to God. It is ours to use, but a godly person will use it as God would, to help and bless others with it as needed. A godly woman will become a good steward of the things God has given her.
“House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD,” —Proverbs 19:14. A man can inherit riches from his father, but a skillful wife who knows how to protect and use those riches wisely is from the Lord. If you would like to be used of the Lord someday, you will need to know how to handle the things of this world wisely and skillfully. Learning how to handle money—spending it wisely, and learning the principles of thrift and economy—will go a long way in preparing you to be a steward of the things with which the Lord wants to entrust you.

I received your catalog and learned so much about applying the Bible to every day life just by reading your catalog! Your explanation of how you choose books brought conviction to me about how I have chosen my entertainments in the past and I am praying to make changes based on your biblical example and arguments. I have ordered as many as I can afford right now and plan to just check off each one until I own everything that you sell. Thank you for all of the care that you put into your selections and for being trustworthy.
