Don't Waste Your Voicemail Greeting

Why didn't I think of that?!?!?  The customer's voicemail greeting, instead of just the standard, "Hi, I'm John Doe, please leave a message and I'll return your call", included a Bible verse.  It wasn't the best verse to pick, it wasn't the easiest translation to read, and he wasn't the greatest reader, but at least it was the Word of God: "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."  And like it or not, everyone who called had to listen to this in order to get to the beep!

Why have I been wasting my voicemail greetings all these years?!??!

This discovery has launched me on a mission to find good verses to include in my voicemail greetings.  There are a lot in the Bible that use the word "call":

I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised,
And I am saved from my enemies. [Psa 18:3 NASB]

As for me, I shall call upon God,
And the LORD will save me. [Psa 55:16 NASB]

For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive,
And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You. [Psa 86:5 NASB]

Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples. [Psa 105:1 NASB]

The LORD is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth. [Psa 145:18 NASB]

Seek the LORD while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the LORD,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon. [Isa 55:6-7 NASB]
But maybe you have some other ideas?  Share them!
