A lesson from the Kimyal's

I have had the Word of God at my finger tips since I was old enough to pick it up. Today, with the internet, I can get pretty well every english Bible translation there is available, and I have access to more study material than I know what to do with.

I recently saw this video of the Kimyal people of Papua, Indonesia receiving for the first time the New Testament in their own language. It's completely humbling to watch something like this and realize how often I take for granted the Living Word of God, and how much I could learn from believers in Christ who literally are still living in the stone age.

"...Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it."
-Luke 11:28 (NIV)
