Writer Robert J. Morgan comments ‘Amazon keeps track of our highlights. When e-book owners mark sentences, the online retailer knows and notes them. Recently Amazon released a list of the most popular passages in some of its bestselling books, such as The Hunger Games, the Harry Potter series, and Pride and Prejudice.
Also released, was the most highlighted passage in the Bible. America's favorite biblical portion might be expected to be John 3:16, Psalm 23, or the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. But, no, it was a less prominent text, but one that strikes a deep chord in today's worried world. It was Philippians 4:6-7: ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus’ .
Praise God that we have a God who will give us peace in challenging times!
