Have you noticed lately how attached young people are to their cell phones? If you disagree, here are a few points to jog your memory:
1. 1. It has gotten to the point where there are laws that are being made about texting while in the car due to this problem.
2. 2. The world texting champion is 13 years old, largely due to her texting an average of 4,000 texts a month!
3. 3. Next time you go to a restaurant, look at the family dinner section. Mom and Dad are probably helping the youngster with the final bites of their mac & cheese and the two teenagers are glued to their cell phones working on forming blisters on their texting fingers.
With those thoughts running through my head about our young generation, this lesson would resonate in the hearts of these diehard texters and cell phone junkies….
Cell phone vs. Bible
Ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell 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 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!
