5 Minute Friday is all about writing, free and fast . . . letting the words spill onto the page without backtracking and editing to perfection. Lisa Jo, the Gypsy Mama is the host of this Challenge and has given us "Relevant" as the prompt for this week's edition. All the details are posted at her site. We would love you to play along . . .
Its relevancy questioned by many, mostly by those who don’t read it.
How can words penned thousands of years ago be relevant in today's society?
Times have changed so dramatically, it is argued and the practices and principles are deemed obsolete.
But I would argue . . . “Not so”
Have you never needed wisdom . . . Proverbs is full of it.
Comfort? . . . embrace the Psalms.
The early books of the Pentateuch tell the stories of people who struggled with issues just as we do . . . lying, stealing, jealousy, fear, compromise, selfishness and more.
If we approach His Word with open hearts, we will find it absolutely relevant as He speaks directly to our need.
“Ancient Words, ever true
Changing me and changing you
We have come with open hearts
O, let the Ancient Words impart”
