May I confess something to you? I often (more often than not) skip over bible verses… not while I am reading the bible… but when I am reading blog posts… or Facebook statuses I just scroll right on past the scripture parts.
Part of this may be annoyance that folks just throw out a verse or two with no context… and yes I could go searching out the surrounding text myself… but I don’t.
Another piece to the puzzle may be that I don’t know where to turn for reliable resources to interpret scripture… I have held firmly to falsehood in the past and it is painful when you build your faith on the wrong rock and that rock crumbles…
So I ask… are you a scripture skipper? Do you have any fantastic bible study resources? How do you find meaning in the bible?
