There is an old story about an elderly woman, who was distressed by the prevailing ignorance of the citizens of a small town concerning the Scriptures. Recognizing that illiteracy was a problem, she convinced the schoolteacher to teach some of the adults in the town to read.
Later, she met one of the pupils on the street. She asked in a kind way, “Well, John, I guess you can read your Bible now, can’t you?”
“Bless your heart, ma’am,” came the grateful reply. “I was out of the Bible and into the sports pages just over a week ago.”
