A lazy and greedy pharmacist in a country neighborhood bought out the other druggist in town, but never took the time to look over all the stock he had inherited. When people came for medicine, he sometimes persuaded them to accept some prescription other than what the doctor had given. As a result, some died.
One day the druggist’s oldest son became ill suddenly. The doctor declared that nothing could save him except a rare medicine that was stocked by the past druggist – if it could be found. Almost frantic, the new pharmacist turned his store upside down, looking for the right bottle. But he had waited too long to become familiar with his stock. While he was searching, his son died.
Christians may b e just as foolish. The Bible is our spiritual pharmacy, and the Great Physician has placed therein what is needed for the sin-sick soul, but few have organized, categorized, sorted, learned, and applied it by meditating on its great truths (1 Timothy 4: 13-16). Consequently, when sorrow, doubt, or trial comes, they know not where to go in the Book for the help they need.
“…behold, now is the day of salvation…” 2 Corinthians 6: 2.
