I learned early on that the BIBLE stood for Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. Since the first time I heard that acronym, I never forgot it, because it made perfect sense.
Everything we purchase comes with a manual (whether we read it or not is another story). A manual gives explicit instructions on how to get the best out of the product or item purchased.
Christ purchased our life on the cross, therefore, it would stand to reason we would be provided with a manual as well.
Scripture is filled with passages of guidance and encouragement. It is a proven and trusted resource that will provide answers to life’s most challenging questions and give comfort in times of uncertainty and fear.
