The Bible vs. Your Mobile Phone

2 Mar

Last Friday at the Eastern Presbytery United CY Meeting, we were heavily challenged by David McCullough about the Focus in our lives. This is something that’s very applicable for all of us and I also recently recieved an email that offered a related challenge. It was asking “What would happen if we started treating our Bible like our Mobile Phones?”

  • Would we be make sure it was continually on our person, in our pockets or handbags?
  • What if we flipped through it several times a day?
  • What if we turned the car around to go and get it if it was forgotten?
  • What if we treated it like we couldn’t live without it?
  • What if we gave it to our children as gifts or presents?
  • What if we were used to recieving messages from the text?
  • What if we used it in case of emergency?
  • What if we used it when we travelled?

I suppose a lot of modern things these days could be used in this case, things like Facebook, MSN and Entertainment Systems. As Christians, obviously we can enjoy these things, use them to catch up with people, relax, but we also must keep everything in moderation. Remembering that we must continually having our priorities right in our Christian lives so that we too can say like the godly King Jehosophat, “But our eyes are on You”. (2 Chronicles 20:12)
