Ok, so I'm a little behind.....
in updating my blog. I can offer you a ton of excuses, but I won't.
Here's what I've been up to with the Scripture Challenge:
The middle set of pics are of the word "Glad" in Hebrew. I don't typically do things in foreign languages, particularly a language I can't read or speak, but as I was doing my Bible study, it occurred to me that it would be cool to do this particular word in its original language.
I am a BIG fan of definitions - just ask my Bible study group. I find that I often use words that I don't really know the meaning of. For example, I know and use the word "glad" often. I know the gist of its meaning, but if you were to ask me the definition of the word - I'd have no idea. I could explain it to you, I could use it in a sentence or two or three. Beauty is another one of those words that is so often used, yet do we really know what it means? Not what we have been conditioned to think it means, but what it really means? How about the word love? Overused and often misused to describe those fluttery feelings for the opposite sex that soon wear off when we realize his feet smell or that he belches and farts just like the rest of 'em.
Anyhow, I don't mean for this to be a commercial for the benefits of reading the dictionary. I did find it fascinating though to explore the original Hebrew word and see what God said. Being "glad" is all about Him - He is the one that makes us glad because we can trust in His aid and in His protection.
What great definitions can you find for those everyday words?
