Cell Phone vs. Bible
I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell
What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we turned back to go get it if we for got it ?
What if we flipped through it several times a day?
What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to kids as gifts?
What if we used it as we traveled?
What if we used it in case of an emergency?
What if we upgraded it to get the latest version?
I was thinking on my way home and got touch by the spirit; and so I wrote
this so you can hear it. It’s just something to think about .
Something to make you say hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, and where is my Bible?
THE DEATH OF COMMON
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend,
Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for
sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in
bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as
knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird catches
the worm, why life isn't always fair, and maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies - don't spend
more than you earn - and sound parenting strategies - adults, not
children, are in charge.
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place, leading to reports of a
six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a
classmate; teens suspended from school for using a mouthwash after
lunch; a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only making
the student's behavior worse.
Common sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the
job they failed to do in disciplining their children, and declined
further when schools were required to get parental consent to
administer panadol, sun lotion or a sticky plaster to a student, but
could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted
to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live when the Ten Commandments became
contraband, churches became businesses, and criminals received better
treatment than their victims. It took a beating when you could no
longer defend yourself from a burglar in your own home, and the
burglar could sue you for assault.
Common sense finally threw in the towel when a woman failed to realize
that the cup of coffee she ordered was hot, so when she spilt some in
her lap she sued the place and was awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust;
His wife, Discretion, his daughter Responsibility, and his son,
reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers, I Know My Rights,
Someone Else is to Blame, and I'm a Victim.
Very few attended the funeral, as so few realized he was gone.
If YOU remember him, pass this eulogy on. If not, join the majority
and do nothing!
Think about it! The highest type of giving is from
the bottom of the heart.
