Calendar Coincidence

Today is November 12, 2013, which can also be written as...

How to commemorate this special day?  Someone challenged me to find an interesting Bible passage based on today's date numbers. I accepted the challenge.

Thanks to the Internet it was easy to search through all the books of the Bible.  Many of the two-verse passages didn't stand well on their own, but after a couple of tries I found a section of Proverbs that worked quite well.  I compared several Bible versions and decided the wording in The New American Bible, Revised Edition really spoke to me.
Proverbs 11:12-13
[12]Whoever reviles a neighbor lacks sense,
but the intelligent keep silent.

[13]One who slanders reveals secrets,
but a trustworthy person keeps a confidence.

  1. The date was rather odd, it's pretty interesting though what can transpire on dates with numbers like this... I had an amazing day and I see you were up for a challenge with the date, and good for you for finding something meaningful with the numbers.

    Enjoy your day!

  2. I had to write and type the date several times yesterday and kind of liked it.
