Last year, Franklin Graham revealed that his father had one Bible verse displayed in large letters all around his house, and he called it his "life verse."

He revealed that the verse was Galatians 6:14, which reads: "But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world."

"Still today, my father Billy Graham has a Bible verse pinned up on the wall in his bedroom, printed in VERY large letters. In fact, it's in the dining room, his bathroom, and several other spots around the house! Back before his 95th birthday, he was working on a sermon based on this key scripture. It was his passion to memorize it, to saturate his heart and mind with it. He made it his life verse," Graham said.
