A number of celebrities take time out of their day to share a Bible verse with fans on social media, singer Jordin Sparks chose to share nine.
The 26-year-old singer-songwriter shared nine verses from Proverbs 27 on Twitter with more than 4 million fans on Saturday. Sparks began with separating Proverbs 27:1–6 into six consecutive tweets, before moving on to Proverbs 27:17, "As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend."
She added her own message to the tweet, "shout out to my sharpeners! You know who you are! I love you," before tweeting verses 19 and 21.
Sparks has been vocal about her faith in the past, inviting her fans to join her when she previously led worship at Angelus Temple in Los Angeles, California, earlier this year.
The singer has also spoken about the impact her faith and the Church has had on her career as an entertainer.
"My faith has been a humongous part of how I have looked at my career. I started out singing in church very young and it took off from there," Sparks said in an interview with Cross Rhythms. "The music business is a very secular world and there are always people quick to point to you as a hypocrite when you mess up with something and fall. I know that God has blessed me to be where I am and everything he has placed before me is just so amazing."
Earlier this year, she spoke about how blessed she was after attending church.
"I was so blessed by the message today! Had chills up to my face," Sparks tweeted in March. "God, I'm so grateful for your grace and love! I do not deserve it. Thank you!"
After acting in the 2014 film "Left Behind," the entertainer spoke about her hope that the movie inspired by the Rrapture would touch the lives of more than just Christians.
"I think the great thing about this movie is that the people in it have the ability to bring in people from all over to see the movie, whether they are believers, whether they're non-believers," Sparks said in an interview with The Christian Post in 2014. "Whether they are agnostic, whether they don't believe in anything, it doesn't matter."
