Issue 494 – Verse of the Week

June 10th – June 16th, 2021


You have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. – Psalm 8:5


Over the past several years, people have been taken with television series about the British royal families. “Victoria” appeared in a PBS series and, more recently, “The Crown” dramatization of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II has been featured on Netflix. In both series, the ups and downs of leading so public a life have been put on display with attempts at accuracy. But they have nothing on you! “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession” (1 Peter 1:9).

So today, hold your head high and walk with all the dignity of one who wears a crown placed upon your head by the Lord Himself!
