consider…

Pay attention, you wealthy people! Weep and moan over the miseries coming upon you. Your riches have rotted. Moths have destroyed your clothes. Your gold and silver have rusted, and their rust will be evidence against you. It will eat your flesh like fire. Consider the treasure you have hoarded in the last days. Listen! Hear the criesContinue reading “consider…”

Care for others

I think it is also necessary to send Epaphroditus to you. He is my brother, coworker, and fellow soldier; and he is your representative who serves my needs. He misses you all, and he was upset because you heard he was sick. In fact, he was so sick that he nearly died. But God had mercy onContinue reading “Care for others”

The disciples of the Pharisees do the same, but your disciples are always eating and drinking.” 34 Jesus replied, “You can’t make the wedding guests fast while the groom is with them, can you? 35 The days will come when the groom will be takenContinue reading “Who do we follow?”

Go and do likewise.

25 A legal expert stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he said, “what must I do to gain eternal life?” 26 Jesus replied, “What is written in the Law? How do you interpret it?” 27 He responded, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with allContinue reading “Go and do likewise.”

7 So, as the Holy Spirit says, Today, if you hear his voice, 8 don’t have stubborn hearts as they did in the rebellion, on the day when they tested me in the desert. 9 That is where your ancestors challenged and tested me, though they had seen my work for forty years. 10 So I was angry withContinue reading “believe”

14 The Pharisees, who were money-lovers, heard all this and sneered at Jesus. 15 He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves before other people, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued by people is deeply offensive to God. 16 Until John, there was only the Law and the Prophets. Since then, the good news ofContinue reading “sinner”
