For January 8, 2006 The PVB

we have tons of bible versions...KJV, NIV, NASB, RSV, TLB, NKJV, TNIV...(almost) ad infinitum
but perhaps the version we all read more than any other is (what i heard one preacher call) the PVB--the paranthetical version of the bible.

"Listen," Jesus says, "you don't have to worry about your life...you don't have to worry about clothes or food or any thing else. i will take care of you just as i take care of the birds and the flowers. Aren't you more valuable to me than they are?"

and our hearts say "yes, it's true (but not for me)." or "i love that passage, how nice...(but you wouldn't believe my problems!)".

but after a monday morning of fretting, i tell you, it is true for you (and for me).

How about"only the parts that work for me" Bible? Seems to me that is the one some people read.
