I’ve been reading Luke lately and there are so many nuggets of wisdom in that book that have stayed with me through life. Some of these nuggets of wisdom are repeated through out the bible but just seeing them again recently brought all the memories back and how those verses changed my life and my way of thinking.
So I thought that I would share them with you and hope that they inspire you too. I’m not going to comment on them as I’d like for you to take what you will from them as reading the bible can be a community thing where you learn together but it’s also a personal thing where you grow personally with God.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For you are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Psalm 23: 4 NKJV
But I tell you who hear me: Love you enemies, do good to those who hate you, pray for those who ill-treat you.
Luke 6: 27-28 NIV
Do to others as you would have them do to you. If you love those who love you what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them.
Luke 6: 31-32 NIV
Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Luke 6: 37-38 NIV
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
Luke 6: 41 NIV
“No good tree bears bad fruit nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.
Luke 6: 43 NIV
