Often the world of the Bible seems so far removed from our reality and daily experiences. Every now and then I’ll catch myself glancing over whole paragraphs when I’m reading a Scripture text – not paying much attention as the story unfolds. Yet, when I take the time, slow down, and take it all in, I realize that many of the stories in Scriptures are not that unfamiliar. Sometimes one will grab my imagination and transcend the thousands of years that separate us. Sometimes I’ll even discover myself in one of the stories. Someone once said the stories in Scriptures are more than just stories about people who lived a long time ago – they are also our stories. blank invoices printable homely.
