God's Site Meter

If the Bible were a blog, would you be on God's site meter today?

  • Would His site meter show that you were reading in the morning? (before you read other things?)
  • Would it show multiple page loads?
  • How many minutes of reading would it show?
  • Do you read the posts, or just the comments? (His Word vs. books about His Word.)
  • Are others who show up on His site meter showing you as the referring site? (In other words, are you linking others to His Word?)
  • Would His site meter show just one brief check each day, or would it show that you refer to His Word multiple times throughout the day?
  • Do you just lurk or actively comment (pray) as you read?
  • Do the amount of times you show up on His site meter reflect a hunger for His Word?

God doesn't need a site meter, of course. He knows. And He doesn't need to know I've been reading His Word as some sort of "ego boost" for Himself. I need what He has to say more than anyone needs what I have to say. And although His Word is complete and unchanging, His Word is very much alive, active, and applicable to my ever-changing circumstances. In that sense there are "new posts" daily, and they are a lifeline like no other. He is the Ultimate Blogger.

Let's spike God's site meter today!

I never noticed those similarities before! There are quite a few. My favorite was this one:

Are others who show up on His site meter showing you as the referring site? (In other words, are you linking others to His Word?

Thanks Cyndi!

I had not looked at it like you wrote, but it has put my mind to thinking about God's meter and will beging to read instead of passing through.

This was so encouraging for me yesterday. Your words kept hanging out in my mind until I put everything aside and spent some time reading my Bible. Thank you. Sometimes simple reminders are just what we need!

Great analogy! There is no better place to be than "logged on" to His heart! Thanks for sharing!
