A little note on a few tips if you come in contact with someone reading the Bible…..(inspired by real life events of my past week)
Don’t be alarmed when you see someone reading the Bible. There are people who read it everyday believe it or not.
Don’t come to the conclusion that that person reading the Bible thinks they are “over you” or “better than you”.
Feel free to ask questions, make comments, seem unaware, persecute or make fun of.
Understand that that person reading the Bible considers themselves (if they follow the teachings of the Bible) a servant to those in the world and is searching for how to love others like God loves us.
Understand that the person reading the Bible might have tried everything else they could have to deal with what they were “dealt” with in life and are searching for fulfilment from what the world can not offer. And
Don’t assume that the person reading the Bible wants to thump you over the head with the book in order for you to read it or believe it.
Lastely, Please understand that the person reading the Bible understands that this world is too much to do on their own; with all of the failing markets, economy, death, hatred and other things seemingly always about to overwhelm us. And becuase that person knows those big things are really there in life, they also konw that there is an even bigger God and when they read the Bible they are meeting with God and reading what he commands. And if you want to too all you have to do is ask and the God of this world will be in your life.
