I read a cute story about a little boy who went to Sunday school one Sunday (what other day would he go to Sunday school?). When the class was over, he told his father that he needed to get a red Bible. His father told him they had recently given him a nice black Bible for his birthday, so why did he think he needed a red Bible? The boy said he needed one because the Sunday school teacher told the class that if their Bible isn’t red, it wouldn’t do them any good. Obviously, he had misunderstood the teacher. What the teacher meant was that if their Bible isn’t READ, it won’t do them any good. We can get a laugh out of this story, but the teacher did have a point. Is your Bible doing you any good? It will, only if it’s read.
