From the Pastorīs Desk, October 2008

Alan Smith, in his “thought-for-the-day” told the story about a preacher talking to a young man about his favorite part of the Bible: The Good Samaritan.  So he asked the young man to tell him the story and this is what he said:  

"Well, as best as I can recall, there was a good Samaritan traveling down the road from Jerusalem to Jericho and he fell among the thorns and they sprang up and choked him and left him half dead. But a man came by feeding his swine and he said to the man, 'I will arise and go to my father.'  So he took up his bed and walked.  But while the soldiers were chasing him through the forest, he got the hair of his head caught up in the trees and he hung there 40 days and 40 nights, and the ravens fed him. Just then, Delilah came along with a big pair of shears and she cut off his hair and he fell on stony ground.  But the good master of the house resurrected the man and he journeyed on his way. All of a sudden, he came to the wall of Jericho and there's Jezebel sitting on the wall and she mocked him.  And he said, 'Chunk her down to the dogs.'  And they chunked her down 70 times 7, and great was the fall thereof, and of the fragments that remained they picked up twelve baskets full, and whose wife shall she be in the resurrection?"

Unfortunately, some people that read that story will accept it as the way it was written.  We have become a nation of Biblically illiterate people. A 2000 Gallup poll shows that only 59% of Americans read the Bible at least occasionally and only 37% read the Bible at least once a week is.

I encourage you to make reading the Bible part of your daily preparation. 

2 Timothy 3:16-17 - All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. NASU

See you Sunday with your Bible in your hand and a desire to hear from God in your heart.
