Sad Commentary on Life

Today I was mixing and mingling with several others at physical therapy (patients and therapists are all in one great big room). I overheard two guys talking about the books they like to read. They mentioned books like "The Shining" and "The Firm." One of them said his wife was always on his case that he needed to pick up the Bible once in a while. His quote, "I do pick up the Bible once in a while, to squash bugs."

How sad to think he finds that the best use of a Bible, when there are believers and seekers all over the world who memorize large portions of scripture and then trade the few Bible pages they can afford with other believers because they do not have ready or affordable access to a Bible.

Even if the Bible is read as a literary book rather than as Holy Scripture, it is a superb example of writing. It has something for everyone!
