What does your Bible look like? What version is it? Is it a website or on your ipod? Is it leather, hardback or paperback? Are you allowed to own one in your country?
The Bible is an amazing gift that God has protected for 3500 years! Before the 1800’s the average family could not afford to have a copy of their own, and here it is available in 40 translations at the click of a button!
Thank God for His story by spending some time reading it today, maybe start at the beginning in Genesis.
“Thank you God for this amazing gift, Your Word. May it be a ‘Lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path’ (Psalm 119:105).”
