Unopened

Michael Beck

“I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.” (Hosea 8:12)

We throw junk mail away unopened. We wince when we see bills and put them aside for later. But what do we do when we get a personal letter from somebody? We open it immediately, eager to know what they’ve written to us.

Do we believe that the Bible is the Word of God? Or do we think it is the worthless musings of men? In Hosea, God says, “I HAVE WRITTEN TO HIM …”

Those who have been deceived into believing that the Bible is just the writing of men have more of an excuse to keep it shelved than those who claim it is the Word of God. The failure of God’s own people to open and read the scriptures, shows how little they care to hear from their God.

Have you checked your “mailbox” today? Someone special has written you.
