Monday Manna for April 6

My Ponderings on the Pentateuch series continues today at Exemplify's Blog. Stop by and see what we can all learn from Lot's Choice.

And back to the issue at hand. :)

Monday Manna

The purpose of Monday Manna is to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word.

For those of you unfamiliar, on the first and third Mondays of each month, anyone who wants to participate can post their thoughts on a specific verse. The verse is posted here at my blog on the Thursday before, to allow you to chew on it over the weekend. It doesn't have to be a long post -- just a few thoughts, a picture you feel helps express it, a poem, a short story, a devotional. Just post it on your blog on Mondayish (early OR late is fine, by the way!), then come back here and link up in the Mr. Linky gadget that will be at the bottom of MY post at o'dark thirty that morning.

The verse I've chosen for this week has been a favorite of mine for at least a few years. I remember sitting in my in-laws' house, doing my regular daily reading, and finding it. It seems to cover so much. Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

So much in these ten words, isn't there? So many angles to take. Looking forward to all your insights. See you on Monday!

  2. I agree with Yvonne - short verse but challenging to put into practise. Judith


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
