Thought Of The Day…

Bible Literacy

Bible literacy is highly important for all Catholics and reading the bible requires a certain discipline.  While we pray for the Holy Spirit to guide us, we too must yearn to know God for ourselves and His love for us through his Word.  Only then will we approach the Bible with reverence,  and the practical knowledge to unlock it’s treasures will be made available to us.

Below is a humorous example of a man with a certain single attitude towards reading the bible :-

He says…..

Lord guide me, he then opens the bible, uses his finger wiggles it a little and lets it point down to ‘Judas hung himself’..’
Oh No! he says to himself then quickly closes and reopens the bible for a second time.  He lets his finger glide down and the passage reads “Go now and do likewise..”  He repeats the process quickly and on the  third attempt it reads, “What you must do, do quickly!”

This might happen if we do not have the discipline or proper attitude…
