Whatsoever Is Lovely ~ Think On These Things

 

Feast Suitcase Essentials

 A young woman was packing a suitcase for a long trip.  

 She said to a woman who was watching her,  

 “I’m just about finished.  

 I only have to put in:  

 A guidebook, a lamp  

   A mirror, my favorite love letters  

 A microscope, a telescope  

 A volume of fine poetry  

 A song book, a few biographies,  

 A package of old letters,  

 A sword,  

 And set of books that I’ve been studying.”  

 The onlooker gasped, “How do you intend to get all that in your suitcase?  

 It’s almost full now!”  

 The woman replied, “Oh, all that won’t take much room.”  

She then walked over to the table, picked up her Bible,  

And placed it in the corner of her suitcase, and closed the lid.  

Winking at her friend, she said, “And I even got in a loaf of living bread too.”  

The Bible says of itself that it is “fresh” with every reading –   

It is never stale.   

   

The Bible is always applicable to life, no matter where ones lives.   

And the truths of the Bible are unshakable –   

They will last forever and never go out of style.   

    

Voltaire once said that in a hundred years, the Bible would be a forgotten book, found only in museums.   

When the hundred years were up, however, Voltaire’s home was occupied by the Geneva Bible Society!   

    

Feed your children a healthy portion of the Bible today.   

Consider it heavenly food,    

And a guidebook that never grows old.   

   

What is a home without a Bible?   

“Tis a home where daily bread for the body is provided, but the soul is never fed.”   

Pr 4:20-22 “ My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.   

Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.   

For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.”
