January 4 – The Bible
I must confess that I have never really read the Bible. I find that somewhat surprising given the fact that I went to eight years of Catholic grammar school, including going to church every Sunday, almost from the day I was born up until early adulthood when I began to have some questions about the changes the Catholic church was making.
Of course I know the major stories, Adam and Eve, Sodom and Gomorrah, King Solomon and the birth and death of Jesus, and I’ve seen some of the movies based on those stories. I know the 10 Commandments and try to live by them faithfully; no lying, cheating, stealing, coveting, honoring my parents, etc.
I even have a bible. I’m pretty sure I got it when I was married as that is one of those things my mother used to give to young couples as a wedding gift, along with the “10 Commandments of Happy and Successful Husband and Wife.”
