After reading a blog post by Maggie titled ‘Bible Verses That Comfort Me’ I was inspired to write this post. So I decided to ask each one of my family members what their favourite verses from the Bible are. After writing this post I realised that one of my sisters and my Mum both have the same favourite Bible verse which is so cool!
My Dad’s… Psalm 46:10 – ‘ “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” ‘
My Mum’s… 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 – ‘Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails!’
Mine… Proverbs 3:5&6 – ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understand; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.’
My elder sister’s… 1 Corinthians 13:8 – ‘Love never fails!’
My younger sister’s… Psalm 144:1&2 – ‘Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues people under me.’
What’s your favourite Bible verse?
Many Blessings, Grace.
