Top 10 Bible Verses for Graduation
By Julie Brice Bei... on June 09, 2014
Graduation is a great milestone in life. Listed below are Bible verses,
God's Holy truth, to encourage and guide graduates. Share God's wisdom
with those you love as they embark on their new journey in life.
Share them on Facebook and Twitter, send them in texts, include them in cards, engrave them on gifts or send out the link to this post but don't fail
to impart God's truth from the Bible.
Only an ongoing and personal relationship with God and belief in Jesus as Lord and Savior can lead to the life God intended for his children.
I found it too difficult to select only the top ten verses. God's word is so rich and meaningful. It speaks to each person individually, meeting them where they are in this moment of their life and their spiritual walk (or lack thereof).
May God bless the Bible verses that you choose to pass along and use them for His eternal purposes.
