Have you ever wondered what the 10 most looked at bible verses are? Well, thanks to the internet we now have a real good idea. Here they are. I somewhat agree with the original observation. With two caveats: 1) Many of these verses already have law/sin/weakness embedded in their understanding and 2) most of them are so common I’m somewhat surprised they needed to be looked up. I guess I might have expected some less well known passages to show up just because people needed to find where they were.
Families used to be local. You knew the family of everyone you knew. Churches gave a formal way to express sympathy – we have all sat on that mourners bench. Kids would learn this stuff from observing mothers. Many of those things are no longer true or are very strained. If you find yourself fumbling for words or actions when someone dies, this is a good short practical wisdom guide.
And this is just a really touching story.
