Sat down this morning to work on my next “Parable Surprise” post and realized that today’s post is Considering the Bible’s 499th post.
Should I ignore this milestone for the blog? Is it just one more number that comes and goes? Yes, of course it is. But it also represents something that has been coming to my thoughts recently.
Can I remember post 218? What about #62? Or even # 434? Why bring up these posts?
The day will come when I (and you) will be granted a complete and thorough review of not simply a story told or a scripture discussed, but of all our thoughts and actions through our entire life, and what each reveals.
Grace will shine that day, and I will understand like I am understood by Him. I do not deserve the kindness and grace He has showered on my life, and with every trial or blessing, I want to reflect His character in my thinking and actions.
Grace works that way.
He exhibits grace and the overflow of love of necessity has to pour out from the vessel. It is only right.
So, with this post, “Considering the Bible” has crossed a milestone that is somewhat unimportant, other than it reminded me that I have forgotten much. Much of the many ways He has protected, guided and provided for my family and I. Of the wonderful people I have had the privilege to know. And the pleasure of sharing my thoughts with you as you take time out of your day to interact with this blog.
Thanks again for coming to visit. I hope you found something of interest in this post and would appreciate a comment, to begin a discussion.

Congratulations! And a great post at that. 1 Corinthians 3:14-15; 2 Corinthians 5:6-10. Shine, Understand – Grace works that way; reflect His character in my thinking and actions, Amen!
I think it is a great achievement, and congratulations on your faithfulness. As someone who is also been blogging on the Bible for awhile, do you find yourself looking back earlier posts and reflecting on your own growth? I sometimes read posts from my early days and think about how I might say it differently today or how I might have understood the text differently in the here and now. Anyway, thanks for your ongoing writing, it is really appreciated. God bless you

Andy. I do find myself looking back and rethinking some of my stuff. It is a learning process.
