For some their Bible sits,
on their coffee table
they only reach for it . . .
when their TV ~ loses its cable.
Other's keep it on a shelf,
where it gathers a lot of dust
they only pick it up . . .
if they feel that ~ they must.
Some carry it with them,
when they go to church
they only open it up . . .
when a verse ~ they're to search.
But, then there are the ones,
who read their Bible every day
they know they need to study it
and apply the truth to their way!
King James Version
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way,
the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
