"Side by Side"

I got this in my email and I really liked it, so I am going to share it with you!


They lie on the table side by side,
The Holy Bible and the TV guide.

One is well worn and cherished with pride,
Not the Bible . . . But the TV guide.

One is used daily to help folks decide,
No, not the Bible . . . But the TV guide.

As the pages are turned, what shall they see,
Oh, what does it matter, turn on the TV.

Then confusion reigns; they can't all agree
On what they should watch on the old TV.

So they open the book in which they confide,
No, not the Bible . . . But the TV guide.

The Word of God is seldom read,
Maybe a verse as they fall into bed.

Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be,
Not from reading the Bible . . . From watching TV.

So then back to the table side by side
Lie the Holy Bible and the TV guide.

No time for prayer, no time for the Word,
The plan of Salvation is seldom heard.

But forgiveness of sin, so full and free,
Is found in the Bible . . . Not on TV.

I really liked that and found it to be really true. Which is really sad!
I also wanted to tell y'all that I am a teenager now!! I was saved 13 years ago yesterday! It does not even seem that long. Our whole life has totally changed. If you have never heard our story I wrote this poem of what happend. I am so thankful that God got a hold of me and saved me!!!
