While reading my bible, I realized that I often come across the phrase “Blessed is the man” and other phrases like it. I decided to look them up, and found that they were great verses with loads of instruction on how we should live. The verses may be short, but they are filled with some good words that we could all learn from, so I decided to post them here. There are many more verses like this, and I encourage everyone to do some studying of their own. So here goes!
