I am my Neighbour’s Bible


I am my neighbour’s bible

He reads me when we meet

Today he reads me in my home

Tomorrow on the street.

He may a friend, relative,

or slight aquaintance be;

He may not even know my name,

Yet he is reading me.


And pray, who is this neighbour,

Who reads me day by day,

To see if I am living  right,

And walking as I pray?

Oh, he is with me always,

To criticise or blame;

So worldly wise in his own eyes

And “Sinner” is his name.


Christian friends and brothers,

If we could only know

How faithfully the world records

Just what we say and do;

Oh, if we could write our record clean,

And come in time to see

Our worldly neighbour won forever to Christ

By reading you and me.


Preach the gosple everyday: use words if necessary. Your example might be the only bible your neighbour will ever get to read.

Luke 10:20 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
