how big is the Bible?

We were sitting around the dinner table, lazily contemplating not bothering to read the Bible, when 7-year-old Thomas piped up and 4-year-old Andy responded.

Thomas (enthusiastically): 'Can we read the Bible tonight? I love God's word!'

Andy (bemused): 'I don't like reading the Bible.'

Thomas (concerned):'If you don't like the Bible, that means you don't like God! It means you don't like Jesus!'

Andy (upset): 'I do like God! I do like Jesus!'

Mum (reassuringly): 'It's okay, Thomas, the Bible is a very big book and Andy is a very small boy.'

Andy (indignantly): 'I am so bigger than the Bible!'
