DAILY READINGS: Ezra 5:1-17; Daniel 6:1-28; Revelation 2:1-17

Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes. Psalm 119:155

A Bible stolen from a Hastings church was returned after 42 years by a German with a guilty conscience. The thief had not got around to reading it! The church treasurer said he did not think the book was worth much. He said, “They used to bring it out at meal times and read it to the children but these days of course, we don’t do that sort of thing.” Which of these was the worst? The one who never read it? The one who placed no value upon it? Or the one who stopped reading it to his children? —Dan Coulson

Cling to the Bible!
Surely its value no mortal can measure:
Seek for its blessing, O soul, while you can! —M. J. Smith
