A man was asked to tell his favorite Bible verse. Here is what he quoted: " And it came to pass." This surprised everybody, as it possibly surprises you.. because it is not a quoted passage, in fact not even a verse. Yet he insisted that " and it came to pass" was the one most meaningful to him.
In every trouble , he explained , he thinks of Biblical line. The problem, the difficulty, did not come to stay; it came to pass. It came to leave its imprint upon his personality and his character. It came to teach its particular lesson. But it was not, of itself a finality. It did not come to stay. It came to pass. - Wilbert E. Scheer.
