"I can’t understand it. It’s boring. It isn’t relevant to my life today." Maybe you’ve heard these phrases before in conversations about certain books of the Bible. Or maybe, like me, you’ve even been guilty of thinking them yourself.
Because let’s face it. Some books are more fun to read than others. Take the Psalms for instance. Who could weave praises together with Holy Spirit inspiration better than King David? Or Paul’s missionary journey in Acts. Who doesn’t love reading such hope-filled, encouraging messages?
However, there are some books we’d rather skip over altogether. We shouldn’t though, because every Word of Scripture is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16). In fact, here are 10 books of the Bible you probably never read, but should. Let’s allow these less popular books to speak into our hearts today like never before.
