Well, I wasn’t going to do another Midnight Madness tonight, but I began to think twice after reading to my daughter from her Bedtime Bible.
Normally this book isn’t too bad, aside from the very glossed over parts about what truly happened in certain stories. I suppose they figure it’s a children’s book, so they have to keep it somewhat discreet.
However, after reading it tonight, I have finally come to realize just how ill advised this book really is. And I began to wonder if this is the reason why so many Christians are often left confused on how they should treat other people.
Here’s one of the bits of advice given for today, on “How to Treat Friends…”
“If your friend is sad, do not try to cheer him up, that will only make him feel worse.”
Do not try to cheer him up??? What? I nearly took the book and threw it against the wall! Thank goodness she wasn’t reading this piece of garbage by herself, and I’m fairly sure we can find a much better book to read next time. Thankfully we have a whole set of Dr. Seuss!
