Bible verse for today

Berean

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 

2 Timothy 3:16

It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. 

Proverbs 25:2

“The name Berean comes from Acts 17:11: “Now the Bereans were more noble-minded than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if these teachings were true.” After encountering resistance and persecution in Thessalonica, Paul and Silas went to Berea to preach the gospel. There, the God-fearing Bereans listened with interest to what Paul and Silas said about Jesus, and then they compared what they heard with the Old Testament Scriptures. Verse 12 says, “As a result, many of them believed, along with quite a few prominent Greek women and men.” The name Berean has come to symbolize people who are careful in their theology and doctrine and accept teaching only if it is supported by Scripture.”  —Source: GotQuestions.org
