Some time ago I learned a little trick about reading…especially about reading the Bible. It’s about where you put the beat. Here’s what I mean: Take the beginning of John 3:16 for example…’For God so loved the world…’ Sounds pretty familiar, right?
Now, move the beat–the emphasis–to different words like this: For GOD so loved the world; or, ‘For God SO loved the world;’ or, ‘For God so LOVED the world;’ finally, ‘For God so loved the WORLD.’ Each time the beat changes, the effect changes.
Try it. You will NEVER read anything the same way again…You will never READ anything the same way again…You will never read ANYTHING the same way again…:)
