Today (and always) I’m thankful for my very own Bible. What a commodity!! A priceless gift and treasure!
I’m guilty blessed to have more than one. My favourite, and most used. is the New American Standard Version, because that’s where I started when God opened my eyes to His Grace in 1972. But many others fill our library of treasured books: KJV, RSV, ESV, NIV, The Living Bible, large print versions, parallel versions, Spanish and French Bibles, and more. Each one shouts:
“From everyone who has been given much, much will be required…”
In spite of such increased responsibility, I am extremely thankful! There are countless believers in other countries who don’t have any Bible to call their own. Or if they do, they’re breaking the law. Voice of the Martyrs presents maps/media displaying countries which either restrict or are hostile to the Bible and Christianity. Check it out here:
When you read your Bible, whether in print, online, on your Ipod, or whatever, thank the Lord for the Truth you hold in your hand. And pray for those who don’t or can’t.
