If The Bible Was Like a Cell Phone

Work­ing in retail, I see many peo­ple each day, and a great deal of them have cell phones, are play­ing with their cell phones, or are talk­ing on their cell phones. (That I can recall, I’ve yet to notice any­one tak­ing pic­tures with their cell phones, sur­pris­ing­ly.) This is adapt­ed from an email for­ward I received from my friend Glen.

I won­der what would hap­pen if we treat­ed the Bible like we treat our cell
phone? 

What if we car­ried it around in our purs­es or pockets?

What if we turned back to go get it if we for­got it?

What if we flipped through it sev­er­al times a day?

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 a gift?

What if we used it as we traveled?

What if we used it in case of an emergency?

Oh, and one thing: Unlike your cell phone, we don’t ever have to wor­ry about the Bible being dis­con­nect­ed because Jesus already paid the bill!


If you do not have a Bible or can­not afford a Bible, they may be request­ed from the Bible Senders.

    1. I very much enjoy the new design; I’m curi­ous, though, as to just how long it’ll remain. My dad com­ment­ed over lunch today that he’s been log­ging on just to see what the style now is here. I’m hop­ing I have final­ly found one which I like, though it needs some fur­ther work. Either way, I can say I’m hap­py with it. :)

      Glad you enjoyed the post, Steve.
