When the seasons change and the summer rolls around, it seems like a lot of things change around us. People's attitudes change, people get into shape, and smiles are floating in the air. The hot weather and happiness just seem to go together. The Bible provides heartwarming verses that are perfect for the start of summer.
If we had to draw summer with crayons on a piece of paper, it would be very bright and make you smile when you look at it. That is what the Bible does as well. No matter what season, day, time, or hour, the Bible always provides a positive message. Jesus and this time of the year seem to have a lot of things in common, and we should read His word to create a positive attitude for the start of the summer season.
