FALLING IN LOVE WITH THE AUTHOR
A young lady once laid down a book which she has just finished, with the remark that it was the dullest story she had ever read.
In the course of time, she became engaged to a young man and one night she said to him: ‘I have a book in my library whose author’s name and even initials are precisely the same as yours. Isn’t that a singular coincidence’? ‘I do not think so’, he replied. ‘Why not, pray’? ‘For the simple reason that I wrote the book’.
That night, the young lady sat up until two o’clock, reading the book again. And this time, it seemed the most interesting story she had ever read. The once dull book was not fairly fascinating because she knew and loved the author.
So, a child of God finds the Bible interesting because he knows and loves the Author! It is his Father’s message, addressed to him.
