FAITH TRIGGER CARD – Let’s talk about THE BIBLE…

Would you rather be Gideon with an army of 300 against 135,000 or David fighting Goliath with a slingshot?
QUESTION TWO
Would you rather be able to read the Bible in Braille or in Chinese?
QUESTION THREE
What are the best ways for you to read the Bible? 
QUESTION FOUR
What styles of writing are there in the Bible? 
QUESTION FIVE
How do you read a letter of love or a poem differently than a historical record? 

THE BIBLE SAYS: Every part of scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another – showing us the truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. (1 Timothy 3:16 MSG) 

TAKE-AWAY: Read the Bible every day to program your mind with God’s truth and goodness.  

BLESSING TO PRAY OVER EACH OTHER: May the Lord bless you and give you a love for His Word.
