Mama’s Translation

Right now our Women’s Group is going through the Joy of Living Bible Study of Hebrews 11: The Hall of Faith.

This morning I read the most awesome story.

The story is told of four clergymen who were discussing the merits of their favorite versions of the Bible. One liked the King James because if its simple, beautiful English. Another named his favorite and said he liked it because it was more literal and closer to the original Hebrew and Greek. The third liked his favorite because if it’s up-to-date vocabulary.  The fourth was silent. When asked his opinion he said, “I liked my mother’s translation best.” The three expressed surprise: “Your mother translated the Bible?” “Yes,” he said, “she did. She translated it into life, and it is the most convincing translation I ever saw.”

Well, good morning sunshine! 

May I be a mama who’s translation of the Bible is a life well lived. A life spent loving others so my kiddos, husband, and my sphere of influence fall in love with you and know you more.
