LIFE BEHIND THE PINE CURTAIN: Cell phone vs. The Bible

Palestine Herald-Press

EDITOR’S NOTE: Life Behind the Pine Curtain is a series of anecdotes collected and edited by Herald-Press Publisher Gary Connor.

   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 when we traveled? What if we used it in case of emergency? Sort of makes 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 has already paid the bill for us.

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