The first said, “I like the King James Version because I admire the dignified Old English language.”
Another said, “I prefer the New American Standard Bible because it’s very similar to both the Hebrew and Greek texts.”
The third said, “I like the Living Bible since it is practical among the youth I serve.”
The fourth paused a bit before saying, “As long as we’re talking about different versions of the Bible, I’d like to mention that I like my father’s version best. His acts and behavior reflect the words of the Bible. I am personally convinced that this is the best version that one can understand.”
We are in desperate need of our fathers’ noble models, which incorporate God’s word in their worship, behavior and inner feelings.
Let us enrich our souls with our church’s literature, which reflects an open Bible in many people’s lives.
God, please open my eyes to Your word.
Grant me to read Your Bible and the lives of Your Saints.
Grant me to translate it into my own life,
So that Your words would be proclaimed to all generations.
