Devo 4 - Checking the Mail

Have you ever gotten a letter or card in the mail?  It is exciting when you get one because you want to know who it is from and what is in it.  Maybe you around your birthday you get cards and sometimes they may even have money in them.  This is a special treat!  In the Bible several of the "books" are actually letters sent to churches or people.  These letters were very special because they let the people getting them about how to be Christians.  Sometimes these letters even answered questions they had asked.

Colossians 4:16 Now when this epistle (letter) is read among you, see that it is read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.

In this verse we see that Paul wanted the letter he had written read to everyone so they could all know how to be better Christians.  When we read Bible we are reading letters that will help us to be good Christians too.  Reading the Bible will show us a reward that is even better than when we get a card with birthday money!
