Its great to be common

The Bible is a collection of stories about people. And people are people. Whether you live in Seattle or Tibet; in the 21st century or the 1st; if you are human, you have much in common with all the other humans. Our problems are the same problems people have been struggling with since God set the clock. All temptations are common, meaning there is nothing new under the sun.

This is GREAT NEWS! Especially for those struggling with emotional and mental pain. It is easy to feel isolated and abnormal, but that is not the truth of your situation. And the Bible- because it is filled with stories about common people applying faith in God to everyday living- can offer comfort, solutions and hope.  The next posts will be stories about depressed people in the Bible: Cain, Hannah, Jesus, Elijah
