Today's Scripture: "You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark you shall put the Testimony that I will give you." Ex 25:21

See it.


Live it.

Ours is a society of packaging. You might not know what's inside a container, but you're asked to buy it sight unseen because the wrapper is pretty. But some things are junk but made to look nice. For that reason, rational people insist of seeing and/or holding things before purchasing it. But manufacturers try to outsmart those smart shoppers by concealing product or making their packaging hard to open. But all that does in increase the number of returns of unacceptable purchases by disfranchised customers—in destroyed packaging.

The thing I love about the Holy Bible is the Truth contained inside doesn't have to be packaged in order to be desirable. I can't tell you how many of my Bible covers have been all but destroyed, but I still have them and revere the time it was my primary resource. judging by the Bibles I see carried around in church, a lot of people agree with me. Never judge a book by its cover.

Pray it.

The deeper I dig in Scripture, God, the more beautiful it gets.
