The Holy Bible and the TV Guide

There on the table,  they lie side by side 

Is God's Holy Bible and the bright TV Guide.


One is well read and cherished with pride 

But that one’s not the Bible, it's the bright TV Guide.


And turning the pages, what shall they see? 

It makes little difference, just turn on that TV.


But confusion begins, for they can't all agree

What they shall watch on their big screen TV.


Shall it be those young stars, who are scantily clothed

Or a violent drama, where sex scenes are shown. 


Or maybe a talk show, where all talk about self

And espouse all their wisdom, but God they'll leave out. 


Yes, they refer to the Book, which they all confide 

But it's not the Bible, it's the bright TV Guide.


The true Word of God, is seldomly read

But maybe one verse,  just before bed.


Exhausted and sleepy, tired as one can be 

Not from reading the Bible, but from watching TV.


Then back to the table,  to lie side by side

God's Holy Bible and the new TV Guide.


There's no time for prayer, and no time for His Word 

Christ's plan of salvation, is seldomly heard.


The forgiveness of sin, it's so full and so free   

We find in God’s Bible, but not on TV.

"Every word of God is pure: he is a shield

unto them that put their trust in him"  (Pro 30:5).


God's word - Read it.  Believe it.
