I read the following by Mark Twain the other day and it amused me:
Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.
It just amused me as I can think of one or two people I know who, whenever they get a pain or feel a bit off colour, they try to diagnose what’s wrong with them. Unsurprisingly, their diagnosis is just about always wrong, as none of them are medically qualified in any way…unless googling their symptoms counts as a medical degree these days!
Anyway, my main reason for mentioning this quote from Mark Twain, is that it reminds me that we are all quick to believe what we read in newspapers and books, but are we as quick to believe what we read in the bible?
It’s funny how we’re quick to believe the words we read in newspapers which are written to make profit for their owners.
It’s funny how we’re quick to believe what we read on internet sites which have no authorisation or qualifications to say what they do.
It’s funny how few of us read our bibles regularly and believe God’s promises contained in it.
Let’s make sure we believe all God’s promises to us, and live our lives as He directs us to.
