‘For the first time in my life, I found happiness.’
HILTON loved boxing. At the age of seven, he was getting into fights
When Hilton returned 12 years later, his parents could hardly believe this was their son! He was calm, controlled, and respectful. What led to this astonishing transformation? While he was away, he began to reflect seriously on where his life was headed. He also examined the Bible to see if it could help him change his ways. “I applied what I read in the Bible,” said Hilton, “which meant getting rid of my old personality and obeying the command at Ephesians 6:2, 3 to honor my parents. For the first time in my life, I found genuine happiness, and I brought joy to my father and mother, not more heartache!”
Hilton’s story underscores both the relevance and the transforming power of Bible values. (Hebrews 4:12) Let us consider some of those values
Why would people risk their lives to read or just own a Bible?
