Is God Fake News? Day 15
Scripture: 2 Timothy 3:16(LB) The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right.
Devotional: The Bible is a collection of 66 different books (39 Old Testament, 27 New Testament) and was written over a span of 1400 years, by 40 different authors, on 3 different continents and in 3 different languages (Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic). Despite this, there is a consistent theme of God’s redeeming love; His desire as a compassionate and patient God, working to draw people to Himself. God inspired the words of the Bible to reveal Himself to you and me, that we might align ourselves to His purpose in this world.
According to this passage, the Bible is useful, it teaches us what is true, shows us where we are off course and sets us on a right path. We can rely on the Bible for direction and purpose for our lives.

It’s a simple tool really - a kind of string with a weight at the end - and it is used to ensure straight lines in midst of building. Without these straight lines, a building or structure will be shabbily constructed and in danger of collapse.
We too, need a plumb line as we build our lives, lest they collapse in on us.
