BirthVerse

This is a really cool website that someone sent me about birthday scripture verses. Go to the website listed below, put in your birthdate and it will give you a scripture that corresponds with your birthday month and day. Pretty cool....check it out! Then, leave me a comment about which verse was meant for you. My verse is Romans 12:17: "Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody."

What a cool website!! What makes it your birth verse though? Mine was:

Micah 4:5 NIV
All the nations may walk in the name of their gods; we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.

I'm not sure how the person came up with it. I will see what I can find out.

Here's the story behind birthverse.

One morning, Bob Harju, the owner of Pumpernickel Press, a greeting
card company, was praying and asked God for his next creative
assignment. Immediately an idea came to Bob. There’s a scripture verse to correlate with each day of the year—and every day is someone’s birthday. Bob, however, wasn’t the only person God was talking to.

Cindy James, an employee at Pumpernickel Press, was looking up
scriptures when she suddenly noticed how the chapter and verse numbers in the Bible could correlate with birth dates. She remembered a prayer she had written in her journal just a few days before expressing her
love for creativity and asking God for direction.

Bob and his wife and Cindy and her husband met for dinner. Cindy shared her story with the Harju’s and Bob almost passed out. He could hardly believe his ears! Cindy was talking about the very same idea he had received just a week earlier. Once the four friends recovered from the
shock of this “revelation,” they realized God had entrusted them with an important idea. This idea involved the awesome esponsibility and privilege of spreading His Word.
