I was recently invited to my nephew’s graduation party and asked to prepare a speech. I read a few speeches for inspiration. Luckily, they gave insight into Bible scriptures, perfect for congratulating a graduate.
Since I understand the scripture well, I selected the best verses, mainly from the book of Psalms.
My speech came out perfectly, especially the verses, which gave it more meaning. I wrote this article to share the verses with others who may need it for an upcoming graduation.
