  • COLUMN: What's your favorite Bible verse?

     There are many, many wonderful scriptures, but if you push me for one favorite, I suppose I would say Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

    What an outstanding statement. It calls for faith and trust on our part, and then we see that God enters into a covenant with us.
