I love reading familiar passages in different versions of the Bible. I know that there are lot of people who don't consider The Message to be an accurate translation, but it certainly opens my eyes to the depth of the Word of God. Try these verses from the Beatitudes as an example:
"You're blessed when you care. At the moment of being 'care-full,' you find yourselves cared for.
You're blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.
You're blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That's when you discover who you really are, and your place in God's family." - Matthew 5:7-9
I think that's sound advice for anyone.
Blessings to you all.
Living in Grace,
