40 Days of Lent - Day Four

Faithful Words Promise Box

Today's reading from the Faithful Words Promise Box:

We pray...that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you.
- 2 Thess. 1:11, 12

I have no idea what a Faithful Words Promise Box is. It was a gift from my friend Coleslaw Lynn. It's a small plastic box, 2" x 3" and contains a number of small pieces of thick paper, about the size of fortune cookie fortunes, but with quotes from the Bible on one side and inspirational verse on the other. I guess you're supposed to pick one at random, and contemplate it during the day. Or perhaps when you need guidance or have a question that needs answering, you turn to the Faithful Words Promise Box. It's kinda like tarot cards, except tarot cards work (ha ha).

All an online search for "faithful words promise box" revealed was that it was once one of the objects in a treasure hunt, along with a Kids Pooh Bear Notepad, 2 books ("The Tale of Peter Rabbit" and "101 Ghost Jokes"), a Rugrats watch, a Temperature Guage and Keychain, a Kids Noise-Maker Keychain, 2 Soap Samples, Matches, and 1 Can of Grapefruit Juice.

There is, however, an electronic version for those who find pulling pieces of paper out of a plastic box too tiring:

I had to delete the previous comment. It looked suspiciously like an email that contains viruses. Better safe than sorry, etc.

I apologize if I am mistaken and that was a genuine comment.

Promise box sounds too much like promise keepers for my taste.
