If you’ve ever wanted to show somebody that the Bible isn’t boring, then today’s reading from the One-Year Bible is the place to send them.

This is the stuff of movies.

I’m not kidding.

I assure you that you’ll find it quite interesting.

You’ll definitely find a lot of action, almost to the point of “guy flick” stuff.

I pray that you find some life lessons along the way, too.

Lessons such as knowing when to be gracious toward the remorseful and when to boldly hold accountable those who mock the mercy of God and men.

Lessons such as ALWAYS telling the truth, particularly when dealing with the things of God.

Lessons such as trusting that as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so does the love of God surround His people — forever.

The reading portion ends with a simple, wise verse that we should all remember.

“There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.” (Proverbs 16:25).

The world has many paths that are said to be the way to true contentment. In fact, public television is sprinkled with such programming and daytime talk shows often give voice to those claiming to have found a new path to the light of earthly and eternal utopia.

Sadly, such paths lead instead to the dark, disgusting cavern of hell.

How do we know which path is right?

Look for Jesus. Live as He lived and as He taught.

Live according to the principles shown by Christ’s example and messages and by the apostolic writings.

They lead to life.

If you’ll read the Bible and walk in the way of Jesus, your eternity won’t be eternal death but instead eternal life.

I’m so glad that our gracious God gives us exciting passages in His Word that can really put some “zoom” into our search for biblical truth.

As always, I love you
