My friend Kathleen and I were discussing a conflict with someone here in our little town, and I told her how I planned to deal with it. She listened, then said, "Just remember, you are probably the only Bible that person will read this year."
It knocked me flat. I had never thought about "being a Bible" before. Yet people should be able to read the Bible, at least a little piece of it, when dealing with any believer.
Good advice, Kathleen.
