Nick and I frequently comment on the freedom we have to read the Bible and the variety of versions we have. It’s because we have digital access to Bibles. Many are free or very low cost. Others are little more expensive, but worth the purchase. l still have my “Bible,” one with plenty of space to write in. Nick prefers the digital one. No freedom to write there, but you can make notes. As one pastor remarked, “There’s no legacy to leave your children and grandchildren with a digital Bible,” but they are handy to have.
This morning I was reading in Exodus. Chapter 13 to be exact. I read Exodus 13:9 And it shall serve as a sign to you on your hand, and as a reminder on your forehead, that the law of the LORD may be in your mouth; for with a powerful hand the LORD brought you out of Egypt. (NASB) Now I know what the Lord meant about on your hand and a reminder on your forehead, but I thought a smartphone in my hand does give me the ability to have the law of the Lord in my hand, which I can read aloud and remind myself of it anywhere, anytime. How amazing is that? Do you suppose that’s how God intended smartphones to be used? Just wondering . . .
