On Woodchucks, Hercules and Condominiums

I came across an old email recently that was one of those comical Top Ten lists…with a point. It’s not intended as this week’s obligatory guilt-trip, I promise, but it could be a helpful reminder that you may be missing something. Enjoy.

Top 10 Signs You May Not Be Reading Your Bible Enough

10) You think Abraham, Isaac & Jacob may have had a few hit songs during the ’60’s.
9) You open to the Gospel of Luke and a World War II Savings Bond falls out.
8) You thought French Peas really did guard the walls of Jericho.
7) Your favorite Old Testament patriarch is Hercules.
6) A small family of woodchucks has taken up residence in the Psalms.
5) You become frustrated because Charlton Heston isn’t listed in the concordance.
4) Catching the kids reading the Song of Solomon, you demand, “Who gave you this stuff?”
3) You think the minor prophets worked in the quarries.
2) You keep falling for it every time when pastor tells you to turn to First Condominiums.

And the No. 1 sign you may not be reading your Bible enough:
1) The kids keep asking too many questions about your usual bedtime story, “Jonah the Shepherd Boy and His Ark of Many Colors.” 

So, why don’t you move the woodchucks out of the way and commit to spending consistent time in God’s word this week. All joking aside, God’s word is God’s way to reveal God’s will in your life. And you just won’t ever get it, spiritually speaking, until you regularly spend time reading and meditating on Scripture.

Bring along your Bible and come join us this Sunday as we explore God’s word together.  But be careful…He just might change your life!
