Have you ever caught yourself saying, “I love that Bible story…it’s my favorite!” But the minute the words tumbled out of your excited mouth you thought of ten others Bible stories that were your favorites?
Has anybody ever asked you what your favorite verse is, your “life verse,” but you couldn’t choose only one because there are so many scriptures that speak to your soul?
Me too. It’s almost comical. I chuckle to myself when I hear those words roll from my lips, “…it’s my favorite.”
I feel like a liar. A cheat. Can you cheat on your favorite Bible story?
You may be new to reading the Bible and not have this “problem” yet, but don’t worry, it won’t take long. You’ll have many favorites too.
These are the first-world, blessed conundrums I find myself in these days. But I’ve decided it’s a very good problem. I’m not lying or cheating.
[tweetability]I simply love the Bible and the life it gives.[/tweetability]
The other day I enjoyed a justifying thought that the Bible is so big, so packed with amazing stories and life changing verses, that if I have twenty favorites, that’s logical in a mathematical sort of way.
So…I say all of that chatter to justify my words today introducing this week’s reading plan.
[tweetability]Psalm 63 is one of my favorite psalms.[/tweetability]
Enjoy, my friends. Linger in David’s love affair with God. Though not perfect, he was described as a man after God’s own heart. (Click here to read.)
How I want to be like that and how I want that for you.
I’m reading with you.
