Re: Bible or TV Guide

On  the table side by side:
The  Holy  Bible and the TV Guide.
One's  well  worn but cherished with pride
(Not the Bible, but the TV Guide).
One's used daily to help folk decide,
No! It isn't the Bible,it's the TV Guide.
As  pages are turned, what will they see?
Oh,  what  does it matter, turn on the TV.
Then  confusion reigns, they can't all agree
On  what they will watch on the old TV.
So they open the book in which they confide
(Not the Bible, it's the TV Guide).
The  Word  of God is seldom read-
Maybe a verse o'er they fall into bed
Exhausted  and sleepy and tired as can be,
(Not from reading the Bible: from watching TV).
So  then back to the table, side by side,
Are the Holy Bible and the TV Guide.
No time for prayer, no time for the Word.
The way of salvation is seldom heard.
Abiding in Christ so full and free
is found in the Bible, not on TV.
Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. (Psa 119:105)

How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You! (Psa 119:9-11)

I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth More than my necessary food. (Job 23:12) (VW)
