Can you imagine what would happen if we treated our bible the same way we treat our cell phone?
If we always carried our bible in our wallet, briefcase, on our belt, or in our purse?
And if we looked through it several times a day?
And went back to look for it when we forget it at home or at the office?
And if we used it to send messages to our friends?
And acted like we couldn't live without it?
And gave it as a gift to our young ones, for their own protection, and in order to stay in constant communication with them?
And took it with us whenever we travel, just in case of an emergency?
Unlike a cell phone, the bible never loses it signal:
We can connect with it anywhere.
We don't have to worry about being low on minutes, because Jesus already paid the bill, and the minutes are unlimited.
And, best of all, there are no dropped calls, and the battery never loses its charge.
"Search for Jehovah, you people, while he may be found. Call to him while he proves to be near." (Isaiah 55:6)

I have written this list of emergency numbers. Put them in a safe place, as they could be very helpful someday, and share with others. You never know when one of these numbers might save a life!

Yours in Christ,
