          Just a simple place for me to put a scripture or two. My plan is to have one here a week or so. I was trying to do one a day, but think I need to go slower. Maybe I'll comment, maybe you will...

          Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1)

          Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. (Acts 17:11)

          Test everything. Hold on to the good. (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

          Examine what I say, challenge me if I seem wrong, rebuke me if I am way off the mark...

    Matthew 3:11 (Amplified Bible)

    11I indeed baptize you in (with) water because of repentance [that is, because of your changing your minds for the better, heartily amending your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins]. But He Who is coming after me is mightier than I, Whose sandals I am not worthy or fit to take off or carry; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

    1 Corinthians 13:9-13 (NIV)

    9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

     13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

     12 Listen to me, you stubborn-hearted,
           you who are far from righteousness.

     13 I am bringing my righteousness near,
           it is not far away;
           and my salvation will not be delayed.
           I will grant salvation to Zion,
           my splendor to Israel.

    Malachi 2:13-15 (NIV)

     13 Another thing you do: You flood the LORD's altar with tears. You weep and wail because he no longer pays attention to your offerings or accepts them with pleasure from your hands. 14 You ask, "Why?" It is because the LORD is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth, because you have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant.

     15 Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.

I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. 13 Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both riches and honor—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings. 14 And if you walk in my ways and obey my statutes and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life."

    Psalm 51:5-12 (NIV)

     5 Surely I was sinful at birth,
           sinful from the time my mother conceived me.

     6 Surely you desire truth in the inner parts;
           you teach me wisdom in the inmost place.

     7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
           wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

     8 Let me hear joy and gladness;
           let the bones you have crushed rejoice.

     9 Hide your face from my sins
           and blot out all my iniquity.

     10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
           and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

     11 Do not cast me from your presence
           or take your Holy Spirit from me.

     12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
           and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
