The Friday Diversion – Week I

I want to start posting little humorous/weird things periodically that I think will entertain you, my audience. Thus I thought up “the Friday Diversion.” I’m planning on keeping them prayer room-related; we’ll see how it goes.

So for this first week, I have a question for everyone (humor me, my silent readers, and comment!).

How do you chose what to highlight in your Bible?

See, I thought most people were like me: I highlight whenever something jumps out at me. That means that pretty much every verse in my Bible that I find profound, worthy of being called “favorite,” or simply touches me — is highlighted. This means that there’s a lot of color in my Bible, but I love it because I can find things so easily. Personally, I prefer colored pencils and I have a key in the back for which colors mean what.

I’m posting this because I asked Josiah the other day why he highlights and he said he only highlights verses he has revelation on. And…he’s the only person I’ve ever asked until now.
