Read: Psalm 119: 129-135
The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand. (Psalm 119: 130)
It’s hard to believe, but phones used to be for making phone calls. That was it. Nothing else! Now we live our entire lives on our smartphones. With all the apps out there, we can do just about anything—access social media, research anything, check on our dog, find a date, listen to music, buy movie tickets, register for camp, or pick a new hairstyle. We can barely imagine life without our smartphones.
Long before smartphones were used to manage our lives, God gave us “apps” through the Bible—direct notes from Him to help us research anything, connect with people, solve problems, and more.
Take Philippians 2, for example:
• The “getting along” app (VV. 2–4)
• The “standing out” app (VV. 14–15)
Or look at the apps of Ephesians 5:
• The “imitating God’s love” app (VV. 1–2)
• The “conversation” app (VV. 4–7)
And the book of Proverbs? It’s full of apps!
You don’t have to wait to download this stuff or free up storage for it—though you can use your phone to access it. Just open the Bible and see the hundreds of ways to apply God’s apps to your everyday living. Got a question about friends or school or other parts of your life? Search the Bible. The answers are there, waiting to be discovered.
What do you trust more—your phone or your Bible? Which is more practical for everyday life? Do you have a Bible app on your phone?.
Dear Jesus, as I open the Scriptures today, please help me to see the amazing things You have for me within them!.
