"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

100 Verse Challenge - Week 5

Click here for Diana's entire post

This week we are learning the first of the verses in the section of Robert J. Morgan's book 100 Verses Everyone Should Know By Heart that is titled "Listening: The Word of God and Prayer."

The "address" of the single scripture we are learning this week is familiar, but the street is different. But Morgan points out many similarities between John 3:16 that we learned during week two, and 2 Timothy 3:16 that we will be working on this week:

All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness."

I'd just like to note a couple of the similarities between the two verses that Morgan draws, John 3:16 referring to our Savior and 2 Timothy 3:16 referring to the Scripture.

- The two, Savior And Scripture comprise the two greatest gifts ever bestowed upon mankind.

- Both Savior and Scripture are referred to as "The Word."

- Both are "utterly unique," Jesus was like no other man, and the Bible is like no other book.

- And as the Savior was without sin, so the Scriptures are without error (Holy Spirit inspired.)
