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.
Whoever reviles a neighbor lacks sense,
but the intelligent keep silent.
One who slanders reveals secrets,
but a trustworthy person keeps a confidence.
