I shared with you a while back that I was doing a study of all the Chapter 4, verse 8's in the books of the Bible. I wrote them all down in a journal, chronologically, to see if there was any continuity or flow. Although I found there was none, it turned out to be a good lesson in scripture writing, never a bad thing in and of itself, and it was fun.
I did find more verses that have become my favorites.
My all time favorites have been Philippians 4:8 and Psalm 4:8, and I have now added:
Job 4:8 As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.
Proverbs 4:8 Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.
Luke 4:8 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.' "
Romans 4:8 "Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them."
2 Corinthians 4:8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
James 4:8 Come near to God and He will come near to you...
1Peter 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
1John 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
I hope you find comfort in some of these as I have.
Leave me comment of your favorite Bible verse. It does not have to be a 4:8 verse.
