Curling up with a good book on a rainy day or at the beach is hard to beat! So what would you say if I told you the best selling book of all-time is the Bible? Yep, the Bible! It has sold five billion copies, yet the Bible is the greatest book never read.
Some say the Bible is boring, irrelevant or too hard to understand. Yet it contains gripping stories (a few even “R” rated), accounts of miracles, timeless principles for life, heart-moving poetry, and amazing prophecies (like Isaiah 45:13 naming Cyrus conquering the known world 150 years before he was born!).
Second Timothy 3:16 says all Scripture is “God-breathed”—His love letter to us to give guidance and hope for living. Psalm 19:10 describes God’s words, They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb.
During this “stay-at-home” time when the future is unknown, why not discover the Bible for yourself? Start in the gospel of John or wander through the Psalms to read the poetic lyrics of ancient Israel’s songbook. It will be time well-spent and just what the doctor ordered for the “pandemic blues”!
