Weekly Verse – Good & Bad Days

One of the things I love most about the Bible is how I can start out looking for scriptures relating to one topic but by the time I’m done I’ve ended up in a slightly different direction.

When that happens I usually stumble upon a scripture that really speaks to me at that moment.  That’s what happened tonight!

This week I’m really feeling grateful for family and friends so I set out to find a verse to share about being grateful or thankful.

The ones I found were all good but they just didn’t grab me.  That’s when I came across Ecclesiastes 7:14 (MSG).  It did.

“On a good day, enjoy yourself;
On a bad day, examine your conscience.
God arranges for both kinds of days
So that we won’t take anything for granted.”

I like the simplicity of this verse and how relatable it is.  We all have both good and bad days.

I also like that it’s a reminder that God is ultimately in control.  Not me.  Something that’s always good to remember.

Ever start out looking for something in the Bible and end up in a different direction?
