So what are you reading this summer? I could disclose my ecclectic and random reading list, but I’ll save that for a later post.
i want to tell you about another book I’m reading. I’ve read it over and over again. It’s that good.
The book? Yeah, you guessed it. The bible.
I’ve actually been reading from 2 Chronicles, which next to Leviticus, has the rep of being the most boring book in the Bible. I disagree.
For example, when King Jehoram (a bad king) died, the bible records this epitaph: no one was sorry when he died. Seriously, that’s in the Bible. How would you like that to be written about you? Challenged me. That’s for sure. I would so hate God to make that my epitaph.
How about a small country that defeated a world superpower because God was on their side? And all they had to do was….sing. Seriously (again). Read this. Made me think about how powerful our God is, and how much I underestimate Him.
There’s a ton more. And that from the second most boring book of the bible. I just had to blurt on a couple of them.
I know this sounds cliche, but I’m hoping that the Bible is the best summer read you’ve got. Cuz I think it is.
What has grabbed you in your readings lately?
