Yesterday, I posted my favorite Bible verse and asked y’all to send in yours. As they continue to roll in, I thought it might be interesting to post what some famous folks said their favorite verses were.
Here’s the first selection …
At the Civil Rights Museum in Montgomery, Alabama, there’s a monument dedicated to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and all those who have struggled for racial equality in America. The monument is a circular slab of granite over which flows a gentle, never-ending stream. Above it appears Dr. King’s favorite verse:
Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream! (Amos 5:24)
Read those words again. Soak in ‘em. Let ‘em seep deep into your soul. And then ask God to help you be a person who passionately pursues justice and righteousness. It just might change the world.
