Today’s Five Minute Friday word is “Present.” Here goes:
What comes to mind when I see this word is a bookmark I had as a kid with this quote, “A book is a PRESENT you can open again and again.” This sure fit me with my love of reading and my ability to re-read my favorite books over and over.
But then my mind also goes to the thought that the “Good Book” is also a present from God that keeps on giving. I often find that I can read the same passage of Scripture at different times in my life and it will speak to me in completely different ways or I will get a new truth from it that I hadn’t thought of before. Does this happen to you too?
I guess because of this I see the value and importance of being in the Word of God consistently (I don’t say daily because that is not always something I can live up to). But realizing that the verse that says something like, “God’s word never comes back empty” is so true! (Isaiah 55:11)
