Something to Think About

THE OTHER day my wife suggested that I sorted out all the different piles of paperwork that are on my desk.

Actually I think that she only said that so she would have room for all her files.

We seem to have less paperwork by post but certainly more by email and our printer is always telling us to add more paper or to change one of the ink cartridges.

What did we do before the computer age when everything was written out in long hand with pen and ink or was passed on by word of mouth?

Perhaps we might have been a little less hassled or perplexed and life was somewhat calmer.

On last week’s BBC ‘Countryfile’ programme it was interesting to hear of the farmer who had chronicled, daily, everything that happened on his farm and he’d always farmed the ‘old fashioned’ way.

The bible as we know it today is mass produced, but in the early days it was labouriously written out on parchments and passed around with great care because it meant so much to the readers.

Sadly so many of us today do not read the bible and therefore miss out on the wonderful truths about the Love of God and of the exciting life which can be found in knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.

When on holiday I am always so glad to find a Gideons bible in the room, which assures me that other guests will have an opportunity to read the word of God.
