I have been honored with the privilege of reviewing a new Study Bible. Each time I agree to do one of these I read my favorite books first and note anything new. The Fresh Start Bible is jam-packed with great side notes throughout. Here’s what I’ve gleaned from the Book of James. (Yes, my absolute favorite book of the entire Bible.)
Robert Morris referring to James 1:17-18:
Understanding God’s goodness makes a huge difference in our relationship with Him. (pg. 1094)
The only reason why we aren’t immediately destroyed the first (or hundredth) time we sin is because God is good. (pg. 1094)
Robert Morris referring to James 3:1-12
The default setting of the tongue is to destroy, and unless we change this setting, we will always do more damage than good. (pg.1095)
The good news is that our tongue can produce good fruit. You can use it to bless your job, your finances, and your family. (pg. 1095)
Robert Morris referring to James 4:3
God gives to us so we can have the joy of imitating Him and giving to others. (pg. 1095)
Next, we’ll look at what is interesting in the book of Esther.
Blessings to you and yours!
