In today’s reading, the number 666 is revealed. It was interesting to read the notes in my Bible and the many interpretations of why this represents the number of the beast. The most intriguing was that if 777 represents the number of perfection, then 666 would in turn represent falling short of perfection. This is a great lesson to us all and expresses our need for a savior who bridges the gap where we fall short of a relationship with Him.
