I'm partial to microwave ovens, breadboxes and the Word of God. Of the three, the one that will never go out of date is the Word of God. No matter what stage of life I find myself in, it's relevant. When I was a child, the Bible was a book of wonderful stories that taught me about life. In my emerging adult life, it became a “lamp to my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105).
When I was a young father, the Bible was a book of blueprints that showed me how to build a family and raise up future kingdom workers. In my mid-adult life, it became a moral compass that guided me through a corrupted world. And in my sunset years, the Bible has become a book of comfort and hope that reminds me of the promises of our Lord.
Yes, things in our home have changed. We've gone from no television to a high-definition plasma screen and from a wood-burning stove to the latest microwave oven. The list goes on and on. The only thing that remains constant in the world is the Word of God.
