PERSPECTIVE

Romans 12:12.    Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder

 

Naana had a hard time with the daily text. It had a bright and optimistic view and She was not a chipper sort of gal. Naana put the Message Bible down and picked up the Amplified Bible. It was as though a light lit up in her head as she read the Bible verse; it had started to make sense to her.

“Constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength],”

Now here were steps she could follow; guidelines to keep her on track – a yardstick of sorts. Maybe all she had really needed was a change in perspective.
black-girl-readingThe Bible has something for everyone, but you might not see it at a particular time, because of the way you look at it.  Read your favourite passage from an unfamiliar version or in a different language and watch it come alive.
