As I’ve been reading along in the Scriptures recently, I’ve come across some verb-adverb pairs that form simple statements about living a life that pleases God.
Sometimes I can be a woman of many words (as my readers may have noticed!). But I like the way the Bible sometimes condenses meanings into few words. The Hebrew and Greek languages promote this. When translators attempt to find the best match for a Hebrew or Greek word, often simpler is clearer and more accurate.
So here are a number of these verb-adverb pairings I’ve searched. They could be bumper stickers. Or cross-stitched on a quilt. I’m sure you can find more; this is only a beginning.
Put together, they could form a personal creed. They are stated in the imperative second-person tense, so you can also consider them commands to YOU from the High Commander. Your mission, should you choose to accept it.
Do it….daily. (That one’s mine).
