Some have referred to him as ‘the most interesting man in the world of politics’ (outside of President Trump), others have said that he is the new face of the Republican Party, while others say that Senator Marco Rubio (R) is just a simple Outback restaurant and Chick-Fil-A-loving politician that has been blessed with the gift of gab.
Outside of what they have learned about him on the campaign trail, most Americans know very little about Rubio, especially what goes on back at the boogie down he calls home, West Miami.
Rubio is one of the top Senators in Washington with considerable swag and influence, but back at home, he is a just dad and takes his marching orders from his wife and his four minnie me’s.
While we joke that he takes his marching orders from his family, Rubio really takes cues from a higher power.
Over the past year or so, maybe longer, Rubio has been tweeting random and daily Bible passages.
One who pays heed to the wind will never sow,
and one who watches the clouds will never reap. Ecclesiastes 11:4

No, Rubio did not have some sudden epiphany, or ‘saw a bright light at the end of a tunnel’ to begin to tweet scripture.
Rubio has always been anchored by his faith.
Yes, we all know that he is a devout Catholic, but did you know that he has held Bible study at his home for years, even before being elected to the U.S. Senate?
We reached out to Rubio and asked him why he has started tweeting Bible verses, and he responded by inferring that he reads ‘the good book’ every single morning, and finds “great wisdom and guidance” from it.

Here is Rubio’s response to the Shark Tank’s request:
“I find great wisdom and guidance in the Bible. And our nation was founded on powerful Judeo-Christian principles. On most mornings, if I come across a passage that stands out to me that day, I try to share it.”-Sen. Marco Rubio
With all that is going on in the world, and seeing how our liberties and freedoms are being threatened both domestic and foreign forces, maybe we should all take pause and revert to reading the Bible every day?
President Trump is also Catholic. I am wondering if he and Rubio ever talk scripture together?
