Fortune Cookie Faith
May 29, 2020
I can do all things…
For I know the plans I have for you…It seems that everyone has a favorite verse or phrase they’ve found in the Bible. Often we seek them out as a source of hope and meaning. However, these verses were not written as separate, individual thoughts like you might find inside a fortune cookie.
Instead, these verses come out of the real context of real people who are asking big questions about God and the world around them.
When read in their original context, we find these verses do not take on less meaning but contain far greater beauty and depth than we’d first seen.
