The Bible - it's a big book when you're looking through it for something written specifically to and for you.
The Bible Draft is a fun and creative way to connect your experiences, thoughts, and feelings directly to the words of Scripture. Played similar to the format of a fantasy football league with the commeraderie among players in your league, the creativity of team names, and the personalization of Scripture passages just for you, the Bible Draft is a worthwhile challenge for those who have never opened the Bible before as well as for anyone else at any stage in the journey.
Happy New Year!
Preparations are underway for 2024 Lent Edition Bible Draft and League (affectionately, LEBDAL). Please reach out to Tim D. Or Sean H. For information.
|The house of Jacob will be a fire, the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau stubble. They will set it ablaze and devour it; none will survive of the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken.
Obadiah, Obadiah, what about Obadiah? I’ve never read Obadiah before, but it is a fun name to say. My first read through of Obadiah, I thought why is this still about Jacob and Esau? That happened a long, long, long, long time ago, like at the beginning of the Bible!
It made me think of relationships. Relationships and arguments that seem to last forever. I see myself in this verse when I can get so frustrated and mad at times at my husband, or sons, or sisters or friends or anyone. I think I have a right to say, ‘my house will be fine but your house, it’s going be stubble and set ablaze and none will survive”. When I cool off, I think, where did that come from or what was I thinking? It makes me smile to think that God is very familiar with any longstanding frustrations and arguments that I have had in my life. And He loves me anyway.
