Have you ever walked out of church watching everyone else smile while you mentally beat yourself up?
Have you ever walked out of church watching everyone else smile while you mentally beat yourself up? Just that morning, in a fit of anger, you threw the orange juice carton across the kitchen.
I won't lie; it took a while for me to connect my life with what I read in the Bible. Eventually, I found a few sentences that I could connect.
Now, I can open my Bible and find a chapter or two I want to read that day. And then I simply try to live that out in some way. When I make the connection between what happens in my life and why I needed that verse, I learn more about God.
I'm sure some Bible scholars would take issue with my simplistic approach. But it sure has helped me throw fewer orange juice cartons across the kitchen and that’s a good thing, just ask my family.
