5 ways your bible is better than your cell phone
The world we live in today is so much different than it was 30 years ago. In the 1980s when cell phones were the new shiny gadget on the block, they were half the size of a lunch box, had a battery that could weigh three pounds, and had an antenna sticking out of them that was the length of your hand. The idea that you could ever do anything except talk on them, if you were lucky enough to get reception, was a wild dream. How things have changed!
Today, the cell phone has evolved into the smart phone. Not only can you talk on them, but you can also send text messages, watch videos, Skype, browse the internet, play video games, and more. The trouble is that people are so addicted to them that they even intrude on social settings. People have even been known to text each other while in the same room. So what does all of this have to do with the Bible, you ask?
Well, here are some ways that the Bible is similar to our smart phone.
- People talk to us through our smart phone.
God speaks to us through the Bible.
- If you get lost, the GPS in your smart phone can help you find your way.
If you’re lost, the Bible will help you find the way.
- You can use the browser in your smart phone to learn a world of things.
You can use the Bible to learn the truth.
- You can use your smartphone to get the weather forecast.
You can read the Bible to learn the signs of the end times.
- You can use your smart phone to make dinner reservations.
Your Bible will show you how to reserve your place with the almighty God in eternity.
So, what do you think would happen if we started using our Bibles like we use our smart phones?
I think we would be much better off, don’t you?
In case you’re wondering, I do realize that you can install a Bible app on your smart phone. There are many of them out there and many of them are free. I’ve installed them on my friend’s smart phones and encouraged them to use them. I hope you do the same!
My favorite Bible app for the smart phone is Sola Bible, which comes with a handful of translations of the Bible to choose from. I like it because it’s easy to quickly navigate to different books and verses very quickly. Do you have a favorite Bible app? Please let me know in the comments section below.
May God richly bless you and your family.
I’ve been a Christian for more than 40 years. In 2013, I began growing in a closer relationship with God as I turned over more and more of my life to Him and asked Him for wisdom. Since then, I’ve been strongly compelled to share God's word and to warn others that we need to get ready because Jesus is coming soon.
