God's Word always at hand.
One of our missionaries back in Ireland after over 40 years in South Africa keeps me supplied with emails with various reflections and quotes. This is his latest one.... some 'fodder to chew' as he says.

Ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our mobile phone?

What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we flipped through it several time 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?

This is something to make you go....hmm...where is my Bible? Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our mobile phone, we don't have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus has already paid the bill.

Makes you stop and think where are my priorities?

'Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path.'
