|"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Phillippians 4:13|
Apparently the King James is the preferred version.
This would be the verse I'd memorize:
|"Jesus wept." John 11:35|
A little less uplifting, perhaps, but still good to be reminded...
|"For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23|
A little Old Testament here...
|"But they who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles [sic], they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31|
This one had actually been left on the leg of a sawhorse. Perhaps appropriately, for "on this hangs all the law and the prophets" (at least partly, according to Jesus):
|"Love the Lord thy God with all thine heart and all thine soul, and all thine strength." Deuteronomy 6:5|
This little encounter occured to me to be one way of heeding the command in Deuteronomy 11: "You shall put these words of hime in your heart and soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand...Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land that the LORD swore to your ancestors to give them, as long as the heavens are above the earth" (vv18-21). I pray the congregation who inhabits this buildling also has better days ahead of it.
