I received this in an email and copied it here. I can’t give credit to the author because I don’t know who wrote it. I cleaned up the grammar a bit. There are people who love the Word of God more than their cell phones.
Have you ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible 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 our children and grandchildren as gifts?
What if we used it when we traveled?
What if we used it in case of emergency?
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. No dropped calls.
So, what are your priorities?
Do you “pick up” when God, Jesus or the Holy Spirit is calling you or do you “ignore message”?
I absolutely love this word, it makes so much sense and yet we do not think about our bibles in such a way. It really makes one think in regards to where our priorities are, and that this is exactly what we should be doing.
Wow! This is very convicting 🙂 As I prepare for the Lenten season, I had decided to limit my cell phone usage (it is my only phone, so I can’t get rid of it completely.) After reading this, though, I thought, maybe I should carry my Bible around like my cellphone instead. Wouldn’t that be cool? Each time I went to reach for my phone, I could grab my Bible instead!!! It might start some great conversations at the coffee place!! Thank you for sharing this!
This is such a great analogy. We spend our time constantly in contact with humans, when God would love to hear from us. I know he doesn’t hear from me nearly as much as my friends do. Thanks for this!
