I’ve been without Internet at the office all morning, finally called the company, and, though the promised tech guy has yet to appear, perhaps he fiddled in the field to get service restored.
I loved Phil’s comparison of the gospels to his four daughters. It’s certainly a hard choice to make, if indeed we ought to show a preference to a book of the Bible, but today’s Daily Nudge asks (OK, so I’m behind the nudging), so here goes.
While the gospels do hold a special place, since they reveal so many details of our Lord’s life, I’m going to go with 1 Peter. Unlike Paul, Peter — not unlike Mark, who supposedly represents his perspective — in his first epistle is compact, but chocked full of detail. His letter is dense, like the short, trimmed lawn grass with a thick carpet of green blades. I like that, suppose it fits my style or something, or his emphases touch on my needs.
I reserve the right to swap out later, but for now, 1 Peter is my choice.
