An explorer discovered an ancient sundial. Recognizing its value, he restored it to its origianal condition and put it in a museum where it would be shielded from the elements – including the sun! Although he valued it, he never used it.
Is this a picture of how many Christians treat the Bible: valued but unused? I think many see the Bible as valuable, but as requiring a lot of effort to understand and apply. People really feel that they are reading about the long ago and far away. Most people think the Bible just can’t compete with Time or Newsweek.
Do you value the Book or do you use the Book? The real test of value is in the use. Agree or disagree?
