My new Bible cover has a zipper you open
and close using a cross …
On the one hand I rely on the cross to
open and close a side pocket to my Bible.
Should I rely on this cross … yes but should
it be on the side? Shouldn’t it be on the main
zipper? Shouldn’t it be the one that opens
to the Book? Shouldn’t it be the cross, by pulling,
tugging, yanking on it, open eyes, heart, and mind
to the truth? Can I trust enough that if i lean on
this object, it will aid me in opening my life to the Word?
Do i love my new cover more than what it covers?
as I flipped to the back i noticed the tag
“Genuine Leather Body” it states, “with simulated
leather trim.” is my faith only
genuine leather with simulated leather trim?
