CELL PHONE vs. BIBLE

I received this e-mail from someone recently. I thought it was worth passing along and pondering.

CELL PHONE vs. BIBLE
I 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 kids as gifts?
What if we used it in case of an 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. Heidi, (I just love your name!) this is so profound! I mean, really--sometimes these analogies really don't apply to how we live today but there is no reason we shouldn't be as attached to our scriptures as we are our cell phone, (or blog or computer or whatever!).
