The Bible vs. The iPhone
It’s easy to bring a Bible to school. But students should also use this event to challenge themselves personally about whether they are making a daily habit of studying God’s Word. Now that school’s started again, many students and families have a much busier schedule. But are we making time for the Bible between all the homework assignments and after-school activities? Here is an email that’s been making the rounds and cuts to the core of the issue:
Ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone?
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!
Discuss: Have there been times when you’ve panicked over your missing cell phone? By comparison, do we have the same reaction when we lose our Bible? What do you think is meant by the statement, “we don’t have to worry about our Bible being disconnected, because Jesus already paid the bill”?
