I pulled the whole open-my-bible-to-a-random-page event this morning when I got up.
Here’s a sampling of what I got out of it:
“Get a grip on things….From now on, you’re the good-news people. Don’t be afraid. Keep a firm grip on what I’m doing.”
“Don’t be afraid. And now here’s what I want you to do: Tell the truth, the whole truth, when you speak. Do the right thing by one another, both personally and in your courts. Don’t cook up plans to take unfair advantage of others. Don’t say what isn’t so. I hate all that stuff. Keep your lives simple and honest.”
“Embrace truth! Love peace!”
-Zechariah 8:something (I have a verse-less Message bible)
