Dusty Shelves

H/T: Christ is in our midst (here)

“The prophets wrote books, then came our Fathers who put them into practice. Those who came after them learnt them by heart. Then came the present generation, who place them on shelves without using them.”

~4th century saying, Desert Fathers

One thought on “Dusty Shelves

  1. The present generation does not care about books written by prophets. It prefers to spend its time on the Internet and on “modern” electronic gadgets, such as cell phones, ipods, etc.

    For the current generation, prophet books are for geeks to read.
