The Bible Answers Practical Questions
Who Says the Bible is Outdated?
>People sometimes ask, “Does the
Bible speak to issues that make a practical difference in my life? So what if it deals with the big questions,
such as, ‘Does God exist?’ or ‘Is there life after death?’ What about daily living kinds of
questions? Does the Bible have anything
at all to say about those? A fair
question. How about these issues?
What is the key to personal happiness and fulfillment? See Ecclesiastes 3:9-14, Philippians 4:11-13, etc.
What is real success and how can I achieve it? See 2 Timothy 4:7-8, Ecclesiastes 5:18-19, Romans 5:1-2, etc.
How should I regard money and possessions? Matthew 6:19-21, 1 Timothy 6:6-10, etc.
How can I make lasting relationships? Proverbs 17:17, 27:17, John 13:34, etc.
What can I do to build a strong marriage and family? Colossians 3:18-21, Proverbs 22:6, Exodus 20:12, etc.
How can God be fair if sometimes people suffer deeply? Romans 5:3-5, Psalm 145:17, the book of Job, etc.
Is there really only one true way to know God? John 14:6, Acts 4:10-12, etc.
These and scores of other questions have their answers in the Bible. But don’t take my word for it: I challenge you to seek out the answers for yourself. Don’t just accept the word of anyone. You must be satisfied yourself. And remember: the Bible does you no good unless you read it!
