Magic 8-Ball

Posted in

When I was growing up, my best friend had a Magic 8-Ball. It was a round plastic sphere that looked like an 8-Ball from a pool table. My friends and I used it for seeking adolescent advice. It was invented in 1946 by Albert C. Carter and Abe Bookman. You’d ask a question, then turn it over to reveal an answer in a window on the ball. It was a fun game. Nobody believed it, but it sure did occupy a bunch of our time.

Wouldn’t be great if we had a Magic 8-Ball to help us make decisions? Just ask the question and out pops the answer. Well, no such luck. However, the Bible does help us.

2 Timothy 3:16=17 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness,  so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. Every good work is no more or less than God’s will and good decisions follow.
