          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 20:15, 28 (From Jan 30 Matt 20:1-28)



    AMP

    15Am I not permitted to do what I choose with what is mine? [Or do you begrudge my being generous?] Is your eye evil because I am good?

    28Just as the Son of Man came not to be waited on but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many [the price paid to set them free].

    NIV

    15Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?'

    28just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

    NAS

     15'Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with what is my own? Or is your eye envious because I am generous?'

    28just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

    NLT

    15 Is it against the law for me to do what I want with my money? Should you be jealous because I am kind to others?’

    28 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

    Deserving Of Special Note:



    Matthew 5:30 (NLT)

    30 And if your hand—even your stronger hand—causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.

    1 Corinthians 4:21-5:2 (NLT)

    21 Which do you choose? Should I come with a rod to punish you, or should I come with love and a gentle spirit?

     1 I can hardly believe the report about the sexual immorality going on among you—something that even pagans don’t do. I am told that a man in your church is living in sin with his stepmother. 2 You are so proud of yourselves, but you should be mourning in sorrow and shame. And you should remove this man from your fellowship.

     17 The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit.
          You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.
