“How to get started reading the Bible”—we’ve all googled it before. No matter how far we’ve come on our faith journey, reading the Bible can be hard! We’re right there with you. We see these Scripture meditations as a way to read Scripture in a digestible way. Let’s start together, one verse at a time!

Looking for More Out of Life?

So you want more out of life—in your career, in your paycheck, in general. And you put in the work, but “more” just doesn’t seem to come to you.

You know deep down that life isn’t all about accumulating money or things, but still…it’d sure be nice to feel like there’s some tangible proof of your hard work.

We hear you. It would be nice. While we don’t have a perfect suggestion wrapped up neatly for you, what we can do is invite you to join us in this Scripture meditation, as we reflect on its truth, and what it might mean for our own desire for “more.” We hope it’s as helpful for you as it is for us!

Psalm 37:16-18

16 Better the little that the righteous have
than the wealth of many wicked;
17 for the power of the wicked will be broken,
but the Lord upholds the righteous.
18 The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care,
and their inheritance will endure forever.
