WSU – Weekly Scripture Unearthings

Hey all!

It’s WSU time!!

Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV):

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

This verse basically means that God will always be with us, no matter what. He knows beforehand what we are going to have to go through, and He will always be by our side. Sure, there may be a lot of times when it doesn’t feel like God is with us, but He is! He will never leave us or forget us. Since we know all of this, there’s absolutely NO reason why we need to be afraid of anything!! God will always be with us, and we don’t need to be distraught or scared of anything.

Have an awesome day!! Also, please share your favorite Bible verses below and I’ll do a WSU of them!!

Cheers!

  1. Song of Solomon 4:5 “Your breasts are like two fawns, like twin fawns of a gazelle that browse among the lilies.”

    Seriously, that isn’t my favorite verse; I just wanted to be snarky and reply with a verse that would be humorous to see in a serious WSU post.

    But that reminds me of an interesting story. From 1997-2001, I was a youth group leader at Jeromeville Covenant. I had heard a talk about basically not rushing into romantic relationships like so many college students do, and building a foundation for a Godly marriage instead. Song of Solomon says multiple times (let’s see… 2:7, 3:5, and 8:4) to not awaken love until it so desires, something like that, I forget the wording because I’ve heard that verse in multiple translations.

    At the time, I would put my favorite Bible verse as my email signature, so it would get attached to every email I sent. This was a common practice among Christian college kids in 1997. Without even thinking of the ramifications of this, I sent an email to one of the youth group kids, a 14-year-old boy. And this verse got attached to it.

    And apparently the kid actually looked up the verse.

    And apparently he had never read Song of Solomon before.

    And the following Sunday at church, I couldn’t pay attention to the sermon, because that kid was sitting next to me, enthusiastically reading Song of Solomon (which was not the Scripture for the sermon that week) and pointing and nudging me and giggling every time he found the word “breasts.” Yeah… time to change my email signature.

    [I kind of threw a spoiler in there since I was still attending Catholic Mass at the point of the story where you and my readers are so far…]

      1. I don’t blame you 😂😂😂

        It would be interesting to try to unearth an unusual verse like this, though. It reminds me of a time, around the same time as the story I told about the youth group kid, when we did Romans in a Bible study. They lumped chapters 15 and 16 together in one week, because 16 is an entire chapter of personal greetings and they figured it wasn’t really important to study in the modern day. I said (I had read this somewhere, I didn’t come up with this thought myself) that chapter 16 is important because it gives us insight on what Paul valued in his personal relationships. And we ended up spending almost the whole time talking about 16 and very little about 15.
