For me, the short journey to find scripture’s most important principles has been invigorating. I hope that it has been interesting, maybe uplifting, for you.
I have by no means exhausted the subject. The more I read, the more I realize how many important principles there are. I guess I’m satisfied with the principles I picked to write about, although some of you may think that I missed some of the most important principles. That’s entirely possible. So I may circle back to this subject in the future.
I appreciate the feedback some of you have given me. It has been insightful. It has made me read more, think harder and deeper, and recognize my limitations.
This study has made me have a more profound thanksgiving, even love, for scripture. It’s rich, beautiful, and powerful. Even when it’s a bit confusing, the continuing examination it produces is exciting. I also realize that I’m still very much human.
Should you have scriptural subjects you would like to explore through this blog, please let me know. I’m pretty much willing to give anything a shot.
“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:10-11, NIV)
“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.” (Romans 15:4)
