A fire in a small Oregon community destroyed everything inside and outside of a mobile home. When the family returned to sift through the ashes, they found the only thing that was salvageable was a small Bible. The family said they were in the process of moving and were not home at the time the fire started. They said the home was very old, and an electrical short might have started the fire. Though they refused a television interview, the family told reporters, “The Bible is proof that God’s word can’t be destroyed.”

1 Peter 1:24-25 (CEV) “The Scriptures say, ‘Humans wither like grass, and their glory fades like wild flowers. Grass dries up, and flowers fall to the ground. (25) But what the Lord has said will stand forever.’ Our good news to you is what the Lord has said.”
