Is your Bible Straving for Attention?


Quite a few people asked for “A Bible’s Diary” from Sunday morning’s sermon. Every place I found it online listed it as author unknown (if anyone know whom the author is, please let me know so I can give credit). Thank you to whomever wrote it. Here is the piece: • Diary of a Bible:
January: A busy time for me. Most of the family decided to read me through this year. They kept me busy for the first three weeks, now I am not as busy.
February: Someone used me for a few minutes last week. He had an argument and was checking references.
March: Grandpa visited us. He kept me on his lap for an hour as he read and studied.
April: I had a couple of busy days. The dad in my house was appointed a leader of something and used me to take his oath of office. Oh btw, I went to church for the first time this year – I love Easter!
May: I have a few grass stains on my pages. Someone pressed some flowers in me.
June: I look like a scrap book, I am stuffed full of clippings. One of the girls got married and before the wedding they looked up 1 Cor 13.
July: They put me in a suitcase today. I guess we are off on vacation. I wish they would leave me at home. The table is more comfortable than staying in this case for the rest of the month.
August: Back home, but still in the suitcase.
September: They finished unpacking and put me back on the table with two new books: True Stories and Funny Stories. I wish they read me as much as they do those books.
October: They used me a little today. One of them sick. Right now I am shined up and in the center of the table . . . an elder must be coming by.
November: Back on the table under the magazines.
December: Christmas is coming. Once they clear all the wrapping paper off of me, they may take me to church again.

This make you think, doesn’t it . . .
