"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

The New Testament

This year I've been reading the New Testament portion of the King James Bible. It's been refreshing to study the words the Savior taught. I much prefer the New Testament God to the Old Testament God.

Things that struck me especially while reading this round are:
  • The personal interest and abiding love Christ has for each individual
  • A higher law that isn't required but can only be auto-enforced by each individual
  • The energy and zeal of the earliest Christian disciples and missionaries
  • Grace, forgiveness, and God's trust that we will do what is right
