Back by popular demand, it’s Friday Favorites! (cheers, confetti, horns)
My sister suggested I share famous people’s favorite verses. I thought that was a great idea. We’ll start this week with Mr. Rogers…
Mr. Roger’s was an amazing human being. He was so calming and likeable. Even gorillas could chat with him! What was Fred Roger’s favorite verse or passage? 1 Corinthians 1:20-31 (click to read entire passage)
Here’s some highlights: “Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?…
“For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength” (:25)
“But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things-and the things that are not-to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him.” (:27-28)
Here’s what Mr. Rogers had to say about it: “Whenever I write a script or a song or walk into the studio for a taping, I pray, ‘Let some word that is heard be thine.’ That’s all that really matters.” **
I like that, “Let some word that is heard be thine.” That’s what I pray for Gloriadelia.
