Favorite Scripture Verses

Here are the rules:
  1. Write a post on your three favorite verses from the Bible and why you like them.
  2. Link back to this post.
  3. In your post tag three other bloggers to carry this theme forward, link to you and other bloggers.
As usual, I did not follow the rules by tagging anyone but instead, I invite all who read this to join in if you wish!
I had a hard time picking my 3 favorites.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly[a] with your God.

I like this because it encapsulates what I aim for daily. I love the simplicity of it.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Again, this is aspirational. It’s how I want to be.

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
I remember, or try to remember, this proverb when communication gets heated and angry. It has worked so beautifully. My culture tells me the opposite, that when I’m angry I should seek to win the argument.
