Thanks #5: The Bible

In case you haven't noticed, my thanks aren't in any particular order.

Yes, I'm thankful for God and Christ for some obvious reasons.  But I'm very thankful that God gave us the Bible.  This collection of writings has been with us for thousands of years and is available for anyone to read.  We can talk to God but we don't always quickly and easily hear an answer.  With the Bible we can go to God's words any time and anywhere.  We have advice, stories, comforting words, and anything we need.  It's also not just for us, but for pretty much anyone.  It's been translated into most languages and has been spread around the world.  Though Jesus is our intercessor, the Bible is the real way to getting to know God properly.  And despite many attempts over the centuries to suppress or discredit it, God has made sure that it's always around.  I give thanks that God gives us this book to understand Him better, and therefore ourselves better.
