Side by Side: Holy Bible and TV Guide

*Stumbled upon an old poem I really liked last night. Thought I’d share it here. 🙂

They lie on the table side by side
The Holy Bible and the TV Guide.

One is well worn and cherished with pride.
Not the Bible, but the TV Guide.

One is used daily to help folks decide.
No, not the Bible, But the TV Guide

As the pages are turned, what shall they see,
Oh, what does it matter, turn on the TV

So they open the book in which they confide,
No, not the Bible, but the TV Guide.

The Word of God is seldom read.
Maybe a verse before they fall into bed.

Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be.
Not from reading the Bible, from watching TV

So then back to the table side by side,
Lie the Holy Bible and the TV Guide.

No time for prayer, no time for the Word,
The plan of Salvation is seldom heard.

But forgiveness of sin, so full and free,
Is found in the Bible, not on TV
