And So It Began

mark chapter 4

March starts the book of St. Mark. Today was Chapter 4 in my reading through the Bible.

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare they way before thee. Mark 1:1-2

The book of St. Mark begins with John The Baptist (son of Zacharias and Elizabeth – cousin of Mary) baptizing Jesus.

And there came a voice from heaven, saying. Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.St (Mark 1:11)

And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?  Mark 4:39-40 KJV

Proverbs and The Contentious

 Contentious note

We are almost through Proverbs in my Reading Through the Bible group. Leviticus and Proverbs have been interesting to me. Reminders of how just being mindful of certain things in life can enrich and make for a happier life whether you’re Christian or not. Simple Goodness or Evil. Which is the preferred to follow? I see evil as having no fruitful outcome except for the evil doers so give me Goodness and Righteousness any day of the week. But as the Bible teaches to each his own for their outcome. Am I a contentious woman? I hope not, however, I do have my days that I’m out of sorts, but I think contention used in Proverbs means more surly attitudes or maybe downright mean? What is your take on contention? I may have it all wrong so would love to hear any thoughts on the subject.

As I’m reading through the Bible, I’m also following a wonderful gal who is sharing her thoughts on Proverbs via Doodling. Check out some of her great artwork doodles by clicking the image.
