Pass it on: the Bible verse that matters to me

We asked our supporters to think about which verse they'd like to pass on to a younger generation. The results were inspiring! Here you can read their amazing responses. But also think about your own...

People tell us the Bible shapes their lives: God speaks to us through its pages, verses bring comfort, or a passage guides us through a difficult decision. The Pass it On campaign is about sharing those experiences, to encourage and inspire others.

Proverbs 3.5-6

It was a verse my grandfather gave to me repeatedly. Almost every time I left his house, he would say it to me. Over the years this verse, framed within a life of wisdom, has comforted, challenged and rebuked me. In part, I owe my love for the Bible to my grandfather; it was his legacy to me.

Psalm 109 v 1 and 2

Psa 109:1 — Psa 109:2
1 My God, whom I praise,
do not remain silent,
2 for people who are wicked and deceitful
have opened their mouths against me;
they have spoken against me with lying tongues.

When I had a serious accident in 2003, concussion meant I didn't remember what had happened. The car driver who hit my bicycle claimed I had swerved, that I was zig zagging. In distress I asked God to speak and immediately read the verse above. I felt God tell me that the driver was lying and when it came to the court case a witness confirmed I had cycled in a straight line.
