Where To Keep Your Bible

We continue our Stamp Out Bible Illiteracy (Gently) festivities here on GUWG.

Last week, we kicked things off with our official Bible Quiz-o-rama to help assess our Bible literacy. Since then, we’ve been going through a slew of ways to get more Bibleishness into our lives.

Today, we discover that the Bible even tells us where to keep our Bibles:

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. (Psalm 119:11)
