How Bible literate are you?
Being literate in the Bible means that you probably spend a lot of time in your Bible, reading through some of the best and most important scriptures! The way that the words of the Bible impact us is totally different for everyone. Some people find a lot of meaning in Psalm 23 which says, "The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever." Others might find a deeper meaning in Psalm 46:1-3 which says, "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging." These verses are so meaningful! They might speak to you differently if you read them as a child, a teenager, and then later on as an adult!
