The bible: trendy or not??

The book that I’ve literally been ready all my life is the bible. It is the book that holds the record for ‘most sold book’ all over the world. I remember my parents having this old fashion bible when I was a kid, but these days you also have trendy bibles.

When I was in South Africa I first came across these trendy bibles. It probably helps that South Africa is a far more religious country than the Netherlands (or that I surrounded myself with more Christians over there than I do here). I saw everybody walking around with these colourful cases and I wondered what they were bringing with them to church. When the sermon started, it all became clear to me when everybody opened their bible.

I have a couple of bibles that I’ve been given throughout the years. My favourite bible that I own and am currently using is my red metal bible. I love that it’s so compact and it’s the only one I have with the New Living translation.

You can say whatever you want about the bible. Whether you’re Christian or not, you must admit that it’s a good book with wonderful (and sometimes even magical) stories. I’ve been reading the same book for over 26 years and I still find something new every time I open it.

Here’s one of my favourite phrases from the bible:

‘Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. ‘
Matthew 6:34

It’s easy, simple, straightforward and so true. Now all I need to do is to follow it and I hope that you will too!
