"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work"
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)

When I was young I first believed that the Bible was merely a book of stories and good moral judgement. As I have grown and matured I realize more and more everyday the importance of God's word and its modern day application to life. That His word holds just as much power, just as much meaning as it did when He said it, or when He inspired those to write it.

There is no wisdom apart from God.

Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You. (psalm 119:11)

This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. (Joshua 1:8)

These writings weren't designed to be a foreign thing of the past to us, we can read ancient greek, translate it and grasp it for all that it has to offer us. Aramaic still exists today in a way which we can directly translate the words of the Old Testament into our own. The Hebrew of old is easily understood and given to us by modern day scholars in such a way that as best our language can describe, we understand, can see the importance, context, and over all meaning of every stoke of their pen. There is nothing lost in the translation if you desire to look for it.

When the Bible says that Jesus got down and washed the disciples feet, we can be assured that Jesus did that very thing. Thats so awesome. Dont take the Word of God for granted, it is just as useful and understable today as ever! So give it the respect it deserves, as the very breath of the Holy Spirit.

I just wanted to share some thoughts and maybe hear some... thanks.
