Rickey Wagoner, a Dayton bus driver, told Dayton police that he was standing outside his bus early Monday morning when he was shot 3 times. Fortunately, his injuries are not life-threatening. This may be due in part to the fact that two of the bullets struck a biblical booklet that Wagoner had in his shirt pocket.
The Bible can do more than protect us from bullets. Jesus once told a group of people, “You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.”—John 5:39-40.
It may be a good thing to carry a Bible in your pocket. It’s an essential thing to read it, and to come to Jesus for the eternal life that only he can give!
