Glorify the lord with me; let us exalt his name together. Psalm 34:3
I was recently talking to a co-worker about personalized license plates and trying to decipher the message. I drove in this morning behind a Jeep with the plate “PS34 VS3”. I wondered immediately what it could be. Initials? A score from a sporting event? A software version? (I do work in technology).
Finally it hit me – PS = Psalm and VS = verse! What a fun way to send a message on a license plate. Then I wondered about how many people would get it. Are they like me and after a while it will come to them? If people aren’t familiar with the Bible would they have ever figured it out? I am certainly curious about the occupation of the person who had this on their car. Are they a minister? A worship leader? A choir director? Why is this verse so special to them?
Retrospectively, I like to think of this as a secret message between Christians. In between meetings I have found myself wondering, if I put a bible verse as my license plate what would it be? What message would I want to send to others? I always think about sharing the love of Christ with the world – how much harder would that be in 8 characters or less?
Prayer: Blessed creator, thank you for placing messages of glory in unexpected places. Help me today to glorify your name!
