The Bible and TV Guide

Feb 2003    

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.
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 before 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.
