Lindsay and I are trying to work on memorizing scripture with our small group this summer. We’ve actually done quite well over the last few weeks. Here are the ones I’m currently memorizing:
This verse has always been one of my favorites, but I have never taken the time to fully memorize it. I think it sums up a lot of the Christian faith quite eloquently.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
This verse is especially meaningful to me right now. I am struggling a lot with how tight of a grip to keep on finances. So many people in our culture screw their lives up with money, but I don’t want to err so much to the tight-wad side that I end up putting my faith in savings or frugality rather than in God’s divine power.
No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.
