Bible Insert: Verses for Counseling & Pastoral Visits


I've adapted these verses from BibleBell for Pastoral Visits, Counseling, etc. I made an insert that fits in the back cover of my bible. I've used a list like this for a while, but it was time to get one that was a bit more extensive.

I can't vouch for the website--it's one of those that has lots of poetry and stories from grandma--but BibleBell's "Bible Verses for Counseling" page was more extensive than most others. I omitted a few verses that didn't quite work contextually, and a few that would be too confusing in an average pastoral visit.

Any way, click on the image for a handy half-page insert for the back of your bible or copy the list below and make your own:
