OK, here’s something I’ve done before. It’s come round again with a slight variation (chinese whispers?). Hey, it’s fun Let’s do it. Here it is:
- Grab the nearest book.
- Open the book to page 123.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
- Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.
The Lord himself will come down from heaven with a loud command, as Jesus also taught: ‘I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live’ (John 5.25).
