Verse of the Day, or Why I Like the Deuterocanonical Books

Reading through the Deuterocanonical Books of the Bible (which Protestants, especially Pentecostals aren’t “supposed” to read) really provides some insight.

When people are dead, 
they inherit maggots, vermin, and worms.” (Sirach 10:11, CEB)

That was in yesterday’s reading.

Today’s reading offers some other nice tidbits:

“Don’t praise people
for their beautiful looks,
and don’t despise people
for their appearance” (Sirach 11:2, CEB)

Basic facts of life, and good advice to boot.
