Tomorrow I promise to read my reading feed. I honestly haven’t been interested in reading anything for almost a week now. I even brought my kindle with me, but it’s sitting at the bottom of my bag. I have, however, read some chapters in my bible bc I wanted to get the focus of the chapter in relation to a common verse. It was good to know that so far as I can tell, the verses seem to be at the heart of the chapter they are in.
I’m not one to throw bible verses around unless I wholeheartedly know WHY it was in a chapter, and HOW it reflects the overall message of that chapter. I’ve found people doing this to me (although not at my church), and I would look it up as soon as I went home. Most were meaningful and addressed the feeling of the word. There were a couple, though, that were taken SO out of context, I wanted to go back to the people who said them and shove the bible in their face. There is no reason to take something at random that doesn’t fit the context.
