Word-up Wednesdays are all about sharing a “word” from an external source that pertains to making right choices in Faith, Family, Food or Fun. Today’s word-up is: Get your Word on!
The Bible is one of the best resources for advice on all four F’s and is a source of hope for many. It isn’t a judgmental, hypocritical, ancient book! It has erotic love poetry, vibrant history, emotional prophecy, comforting promises, principles for living a blessed life, and warnings about unseen dangers. More importantly, it comes from the God Who gave us the capacity for Faith and Fun and Who blesses us with Food and Family.
Since Thanksgiving is coming up, why not get into the very book that instigated both the Pilgrim’s dinner at Plymouth Rock and the Thanksgiving proclamation by Abraham Lincoln? You may discover that you have one more thing to be thankful for 🙂
One of the pastors at my church (Jeremy Godwin) has written several how-tos that should make Bible-reading more interesting and “organic” (I love organic things, don’t you?). I’ve put a couple of my own comments on his relatively short posts: I’d love to see some of yours there too. Here are some direct links to Pastor Jeremy’s “Beyond Just Reading” series:
Helping of Hope. Right choice: Get your “Word-on” in the way that suits your personality and learning style best: read the original Hope resource, the Bible! (I hope you’ll follow Jeremy Godwin’s blog too: he has a lot of great stuff about relationships and communication too). Bright future: a closer awareness of the One who wants the best for your Faith, Family, Food, and Fun. His “Word” (the Bible) will show you how to receive blessings in each of those F’s as you draw closer to Him by spending time reading His Love Letter to YOU.
