Words of Silver from the Bible
Today I thought I would share a sweet little booklet I recently found while going through some old stationery items. This dear little booklet, printed by Warner Press, measures about 2 inches by 3 inches and is made to look like a Bible. It opens out to reveal some fifteen Bible verses. One of these is John 3:16" "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Several of the other verses reference silver. Here is one of them:
"How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!" (Proverbs 16:16)
This is so true. Godly wisdom is far more valuable than any other commodity.
Another of the "words of silver" featured in this little treasure is Psalm 4:8, one of my personal favorites and a real gem if you have children who occasionally experience scary dreams: "I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for Thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety."
I will leave you with another favorite from this booklet. I have experienced the truth of this verse:
"The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust..." (Psalm 18:2)
Hope you have enjoyed these "words of silver from the Bible" today!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
