All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. (New Living Translation)
I’ve been operating in my spiritual gifts for the better part of my adult life. I know how I’m wired, and I use that to benefit others. Because my top spiritual gifts are wisdom and exhortation, I love the verse above. I love it because the Word of God, the entire 66 books of the Bible, are truly inspired by God. Each and every word is useful in our lives to help us “realize what is wrong” and to “teach us to do what is right.”I have not achieved perfection on this earth. I don’t have it all together. There are days when an onlooker might not even think I am a Christ follower.But I do know where to go when those days come. I go to the Word. I hear what God has to say about my plight. And then I press on to walk as closely to Him as possible.Thank you, God, for giving us hope, guidance and inspiration as we journey through this thing called life.
