We love this Bible App
- It gives you many translations to read from – we suggest to start with the New Living Translation which is fairly easy to read.
- It gives you Bible reading plans so you can read a bit each day.
- Start with a Gospel – Matthew, Mark, Luke or John – who tell us about the life of Jesus.
- You don’t have to read, you can listen!

Oh to be wise! Truly wise! Wisdom is the practical ability to take the truth and correctly apply it to the situations we face day by day, (see the parable of the wise and foolish builders in Matthew 7v24-27). In the parable, if you have heard that rock is firmer that...read more
