Bible vs. the iPhone


Here is an email that’s been making the rounds. How does it strike 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 kids as gifts? bible1.jpg

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!

Something to think about as we head into a new year!

    And now we can also carry our Bibles around on our iPhones. I’m still getting adjusted to seeing people looking at their iPhones reading scripture when the pastor says, “Open your Bible to page…” We visited a church for Christmas Eve service and the person reading the Bible for the congregation was doing so from his iPhone. I know technology is where we are all headed but I’m still getting accustomed to that change.
