What Would Happen?

A friend of mine sent this to me. I thought it was worth sharing.

I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bibles like we treat our cell phone?
 

 What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
 What if we flipped through it several times a day?

What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
 

 What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
 
 What if we treated it like we couldn’t live without it?What if we gave it to kids as gifts?

What if we used it when we traveled?

What if we used it in case of emergency?

This is something to make you go….hmm…where is my Bible?

Oh!  And one more thing. Unlike our cell phone, we don’t have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill.

Makes you stop and think, “Where are my priorities?”

And no dropped calls!

  1. I think we often do treat our Bibles like we do our cell phones…we take them for granted until that emergency hits and our battery is dead and all the sudden it’s as useless for making a call as the cement your standing on.

    We need to treat our Bibles like they are God’s Revelation to us. His Word is important enough to internalize simply because it is HIS. When we understand the immense privilege we have to freely read, understand and obey what He says, then we will be willing to meditate on it day and night and teach it to our children.

    “These words I am commanding you today must be kept in mind, and you must teach them to your children and speak of them as you sit in your house, as you walk along the road, as you lie down, and as you get up.” Deut. 6:6-7 (NET)
