Scripture

I'm thinking about favourite scripture verses this morning. I've got a couple that I have posted on my bulletin board. I remember when I first read Isaiah 35:3 I did a big "whoopee! that's for me!"

I must have been feeling particularly achy that day:
Strengthen the weak hands and make firm the feeble knees.

It's probably a good thing I didn't find Mark 12: 28 any sooner than I did. How bad can it be if Jesus spent a whole day at it?

And Jesus had been all day arguing with the Sanhedrin.

I've had great conversations with various groups of people about whether we feel more drawn to the Great Commission or the Lukan Manifesto.

Matthew 28: Go into all the world and make disciples...
Luke 4: Tell the good news to the poor, set the captive free, bring sight to the blind...

That's the kind of conversation a few of us had under that famous Erie Beach tree. Would you believe we spent almost two hours on Matthew 1:1-17. It could be because most of us skip over that part when we read Matthew's gospel. Who knew there was just so much treasure in a list of Jesus' ancestors!

Oh what we're missing!

Anybody care to share your favourites? And a couple of lines about why would be great as well.
