What if...



...we treated our Bibles like we treat our cell phones?

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 interrupted our favourite program to take just one verse?

What if we gave it to our children as a gift?

What if we made sure our friends and family were on the same plan?

What if we stepped out of a meeting, just to read one encouraging verse?

What if we used it when we traveled?

What if we used it in case of emergency?

What if we interrupted our dinner to read it?

Unlike our cell phones, we don’t have to worry about our Bibles being “disconnected” because of an unpaid bill.

JESUS already paid the bill in full.

And just think -- no dropped calls! God hears them all! --

  4. Amen to this Lynette...I started carrying one of my bible's in my car, and if I get a moment I will read a verse or too, but I need to find more moments during the day. Thanks again for more food for thought, I am sharing this with my bible study group this Sunday.
