I’ve been reading through the Bible this year using Contemporary English Version. It’s not my favorite, but it has brought a different look on things and makes me work through my beliefs as I go back and read verses in the NIV or NLT.
The memory verse for online Bible Studies at Proverbs 31 this week is Psalm 37:23-24. I especially liked vs. 24 in ESV
“The Lord will hold your hand, and if you stumble, you will not fall.”
It makes me see a picture of a Dad holding his child’s hand crossing the road or facing a dangerous place. It makes you feel safe and confident that your steps will be right and you won’t go astray because you can’t get further than an arms length from Him!
