Do you ever read Scripture and find yourself wondering, “is the Bible relevant today?” We definitely feel that disconnect. So we’ve set out to make Scripture meditations that give us a framework for how to start reading the Bible. Join us as we let the Bible be the Bible, and learn to engage with it meaningfully. 

Am I Good Enough for God?

Strong. Best of class. Most capable. Brave. Successful. We’re told these are the things we need to be to prove ourselves to others. Buut, that’s not what God is impressed by. 

When it comes to our relationship with our loving Father, “Am I good enough for God?” is the wrong question. Check out today’s Scripture meditation for a refresher on what God looks for and delights in! 

Psalm 147:10-11

10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,

    nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;

11 the Lord delights in those who fear him,

    who put their hope in his unfailing love.

What This Teaches Us about God

  • He doesn’t only value strength (v. 10)
  • He values respect and faithfulness (v. 11)
  • He wants us to put our hope in his love (v. 11)
