The Bible is not meant for beating on. The Bible is not meant to be a step stool for us to stand on so we can look down on those around us. The Bible is not meant for what so many use it for, self-righteousness and hurt. For lashing out on, for judgment and agendas. This sweet book, the Holy Bible, is meant as a guidebook for the lost. Think of it as a map, a treasure map. Right now there is suffering in this life. Right now today my family is hurting and confused and so am I. So today, I go to The Holy Bible, and start back down the path for treasure. Let us run, not walk, to the treasure of the word of the Lord.
PS- I know there is so much more on this topic, we could go deeper and deeper. There's so much theology here and so many more words. Maybe someday we will study this topic together. Today these are the words God gave me, for someone out there that needs to here just this.
