Alas, I never knew I had so many readers until I wrote Simeon instead of Simon two posts ago. Most wrote privately, to correct or cheer. To all I say, “Thanks for reading and caring.”
Then, just now in ” A Nickel for your Thoughts”, I quoted from The Message…noted Acts 3 but not the source of such a well-worded phrase as “Not a nickel to my name.” You can thank the brilliant mind and tender heart of Eugene H. Peterson, not me.
Words matter, as does giving credit where due.
Over the years, I’ve been grateful for translations and paraphrases that drew me to read the Bible instead of shelve it.
Thanks be to God for J.B. Phillips’ paraphrase, Ken Taylor’s Living Bible, the New Living Translation from Mark Taylor and team at Tyndale and Eugene Peterson’s The Message. They’ve all contributed to the joy of discovering God’s words for everyday living.
