Hello friends! Welcome back to another day of Proverbs. Much like yesterday, I invite you to circle or underline the proverbs that stick out to you if you are reading in a physical Bible or copy/paste in a virtual Bible to a place where you can come back to them frequently. Share in the comments if you'd be willing the ones you like and why. We learn best from one another, right? :)
Scripture to Read
Questions to Consider
What does this teach me about God?
What does this teach me about humanity?W
What does this teach me about the relationship between the two?
Today we'll close out the series on "How to Read the Bible" from the Bible Project by looking at their video on "Metaphor in Biblical Poetry" Share your thoughts on how what you like best about their work or how it's helped you! :)
Today our prayer is inspired by hymn 158 in our United Methodist hymnal - Come, Christians, Join to Sing. I invite you to hum, sing, or recite the words of the hymn as your prayer for today. The lyrics can be found beneath the video.
1 Come, Christians, join to sing: Alleluia! Amen! loud praise to Christ our King: Alleluia! Amen! Let all, with heart and voice, before his throne rejoice; praise is his gracious choice. Alleluia! Amen!
3 Praise yet the Lord again: Alleluia! Amen! Life shall not end the strain: Alleluia! Amen! On heaven’s blissful shore his goodness we’ll adore, singing forevermore: Alleluia! Amen!
