A Sad Choice

Author Unknown


On the table side by side

The Holy Bible and the T.V. guide.

One is well worn but cherished with pride

Not the Bible but the T.V. Guide.

One is used daily to help folks to decide

No it isnt the Bible, its the T.V. Guide.

As pages are turned what shall they see

Oh what does it matter turn on the T.V.


So they open the book in which they confide

No not the Bible, its the T.V. Guide.

The Word of God is seldom read

Maybe a verse ere they fall into bed.

Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be

Not from reading the Bible, but watching T.V.


So then back to the table side and side

Its the Holy Bible and the T.V. Guide.

No time for prayer, no time for the Word,

The plan for salvation is seldom heard.

Forgiveness of sin so full and free,

Is found in the Bible -- not the T.V.
