I think a lot of us are where we are in our lives because this is just sort of where we got stuck.
Most of the time the reason people get stuck where they are is because they aren’t looking for the right things. My preacher used an example: if there was a million dollars underneath the stage at my church and all we had to do was dig 10 feet would we not start digging automatically to reach the money? Now, what if there was a Bible, but not just any Bible, the only Bible left on earth, would we not start digging automatically to get to it?
I would like to have both, to be honest, but if I had to choose I would choose the Bible. Is the Bible not a gateway to God, a source that we can open up thats overflowing with His presence? Now, don’t get me wrong, you don’t have to have the Bible to be close to God but knowing His word is what will allow us to grow.
Too many people, though, would rather choose the money over the Bible. Too many people search out the wrong thing and can’t go anywhere in their lives. They get stuck.
