Daily Bible Verse - 11/3/2007 - Acts 5:29

NIV Peter and the other apostles replied: "We must obey God rather than men!
KJV Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
NASB But Peter and the apostles answered, We must obey God rather than men.
Acts 5:29
As to the accusation of disobedience to authority, Peter put the charge in context. Jesus had said, "You shall be My witnesses" (1:8). The council said, "You shall not be His witnesses" (v. 28). All authority comes from God. When any authority commands what God has forbidden, or forbids what God has commanded, a Christian must obey the Author of all authority, God Himself. We submit to governmental authority because the One who instituted the authority is God Himself. When we submit to government, we are submitting to God.

Daily Bible Verse - 11/3/2007 - Psalm 104:24

NIV How many are your works, O LORD!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
KJV O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
NASB O LORD, how many are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all;
The earth is full of Your possessions.
Psalm 104:24
The variety of God's works is staggering. "What wisdom has designed them all" (Knox). The earth is full of His creatures, and He cares for each one with amazing attention to detail. The sea swarms with life both small and great, ranging all the way from the minute plankton to the whales.

Planet Earth and Blue Planet
After choosing today's verse, I wanted to recommend two incredible series produced by the BBC: Planet Earth and Blue Planet: Seas of Life. These shows will certainly give you an appreciate for the vastness, diversity, and complexity of God's creation.
