Wiser and Richer

Wiser and Richer

Benjamin Franklin was attending a meeting in Paris, France with the Literary Society. Each attendee was asked to select an excerpt from literature they esteemed as exceptional and then read their selection before the society fellows.  Each read their favorite and then Franklin read his.  The entire group was moved with noticeable appreciation of his story choice (He did not tell them he read to them the book of Ruth). They inquired how they could have possibly overlooked such a fine piece of Literature in their years of reading and research. Mr. Franklin then confided that his selection was from the Holy Scriptures and that the Scriptures were worth their attention.  The Society of fellows tried to deflect their ignorance by saying they had assumed there was nothing in Scripture worth their attention.

Some like Franklin appreciate the genius of the Literature but miss the eternal truths that transform and sustain lives.  In the Bible you will learn of Christ the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  He has something of value in His Word that you need each day. Those who read and study are the wiser and richer. One enriched student penned his appreciation this way.

When I prayerfully look in this precious old book, 
Much pleasure and treasure I see;
Many tokens of love from a Father above,  
Who is nearest and dearest to me.
This book is my guide, a friend at my side,
It lightens and brightens my day;
Each promise I find soothes and  
Gladdens my mind,
As I read and heed it today.

The Bible can bring you to help and hope, to cleansing from guilt and shame, to right beliefs and honorable behavior, and to worthwhile purpose and lasting peace.  Read it; study it; believe and obey it!  Then share your great finds with others.  BBNBI is here to help you get more from your Bible. Have you taken a course lately? Have you told a friend about the BI lately?
