tagged me! Here we go...1. Who is your favourite Biblical personage, other than Jesus?
David. Of all the people we read about in the Bible, I feel like we're given one of the most complete portraits of a person in David--not only on what we read about him in the history of the Old Testament, but also the Psalms. David was a man who wanted to follow God and was a man after God's own heart. But yet, he was still human. He still struggled, he still fell short, he still made stupid mistakes, some big and some little (Bathsheba anyone?). I take comfort in David because he faced the same stuff I do and he reacted the same way I do at times. He got angry at God, he loved God, he sang praises to God, he talked to God, he felt far from God. But in all of it, David was a man of God. And I love the encouragement.2. What is your favourite book of the Old Testament?
I've got to admit I really like Genesis. Part of it may be that in high school our Sunday School teacher went word by word in examining it, studying it and dissecting it. And I love it. If I won the lottery and never had to work again, I'd spend the rest of my life studying and dissecting the Bible word for word like we did back then. With a group of course...I find that reading the Bible is a personal thing but there are times when it's great to have others offer their commentary.3. What is your least favourite book of the Old Testament?
I'd have to see Dueteronomy. Or as I call it--what happened after the lawyers got hold of the 10 Commandments. "Well, God you didn't specifically say we couldn't do this exact thing, so I guess it's OK."4. What is your favourite non- gospel book of the New Testament?
I'm gonna have to go with Romans. For now...this could change later as I continue to read and study.5. What is your life verse?
Irony of ironies....it comes from Deuteronomy...
"Now what I am commanding you this day is neither too difficult nor beyond your reach." --Deuteronomy 30:11
I memorized this one during my diet to help and I had no idea how often I'd need it for other areas of my life. It's been a huge comfort and help in good times and hard times for years now.6. Tag 5 people who might want to play
