Recently I needed a new Bible, and at my favourite Christian bookstore I noticed advertising that said: “The perfect gift for any occasion”
And that got me thinking… Is the Bible really the perfect gift for every occasion?
A Bible is an appropriate gift for weddings, funerals, birthdays, graduations, new haircuts, new jobs, new pets, new hats, first date, first house, first football, first reading lesson, last murder, last breath, last drink, last hiccup… I’m sure the list goes on.
The Bible is a very versatile gift, but I thought of a situation where it isn’t appropriate.
“Hey <insert friends name>, congratulations on memorising the whole bible! I got you a Bible!”
