“Jesus did many other things as well. If everyone of them were written down, i suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”
I have always loved book. The number of books around my home testify to that. As a school girl I was a frequent visitor to our local ‘Carnegie’ Library. It would be true to say that I knew those books and shelves as well as the librarians did. Sadly that library is now empty, abandoned, and I cannot say that its replacement, a modern, non classic architectural structure that seems to have sprung up overnight has captured my heart. Unless the computers are offline, or the internet connection down they don’t really need a librarian, libraries have gone D.I.Y.
I prefer the old to the new. Having said that I like my eReader, a Library I can hold in my hand.
The scripture quoted is the last verse of John’s Gospel and I am wondering that his reaction would have been to Kindles, Kobo’s, laptops, macs, pcs and the internet? So many ways to store, read, study and pass on God’s word.
I smile and wonder some more, I am reading the opening verse of John’s Gospel:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”(John 1:1)
Can my heart, can your heart be big enough to hold the Word of God?
