Is Your Bible Interesting?

Mother was trying to get eight year old daughter Mary to learn her Sunday School lesson. At length she took her Bible from the bureau and said; “Come Mary, I will help you learn your lesson, and then you may go back to your play.”  

“All right. Mom, but lets study it out of grandfather’s Bible. It is much more interesting than yours.”

“Oh, no, Mary, they are exactly alike.”

“Well, I think grandfather’s must be more interesting than yours, he reads it so much more.”

Mr. Meant-To

Mr. Mean’t to has a comrade, and his name is Didn’t-Do. Have you ever chanced to meet them? Have they ever called on you? These two fellows live together in the house of never-win, and I’m told that it is haunted by the ghost of might-have-been.

The Unlocked Door

The daughter of a widow had left her mother’s house. Led astray by others, she had forsaken the guidance of her mother and her spiritual training. Diligently her mother prayed for the child. Her efforts bombarding the throne of grace were not futile.

The child became burdened by her sin, and she returned home late one night. It was near midnight, and she was surprised to find the door unlocked. Her mother later explained ot her why it was unlatched.

I have always thought that Noah was safe inside the Ark because he built it according to God’s specifications. I thought that perhaps it was the strength of the gopher wood and the soundness of the architecture that ensured that the waters of the food would not come into the Ark.

But today I encountered a verse that shifted this whole paradigm. Let’s read what Genesis 7:16 says. “The animals going in were male and female of every living thing as God had commanded Noah. Then God shut him in.”

A slave was once sent by his master on an errand that did not suit him. He did not want to go, but he went as his master commanded him. 

When he came to a river, he turned back, and said,  “Master, I came to a river, and I could not swim across it.” 

“Well, was there not a ferry boat to take you across?”

“Yes, there was a ferry boat but the man that manned the boat was on the other side.” 

“Well,” said the master, “ did you call to the ferry man to come and take you across?
