Facebook or Bible?

Question: What matters more?  A:  What the living God of the Universe has to tell you in His word?  Or B:  what people you barely know had for dinner?

According to the Associated Press, more people are choosing “B,” to check Facebook than read their Bible every day.  Facebook claims 143 million daily users across North America, yet polls show only 40 million in the U.S. read the Bible each day.  That doesn’t account for Canada and Mexico, but it’s not likely they make up the 100 million difference.

Trending: Does Supreme Court Need Term Limits?

This month, why not try something new?  Don’t go on Facebook until you’ve read your Bible?  And then, when on Facebook, be sure to post Bible verses for all those who’ve been missing out.
