June 22: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


Just because you stand in a garage and call yourself a car, even if everyone else is convinced you’re a car, doesn’t prove you’re actually a car. Matthew 7:21-23

True wisdom is recognized and revered by even those who don’t agree with you, and thus, that yields authority. Matthew 7:29

Jesus might not have agreed with the dominant religious culture of his day. But he did respect it. Matthew 8:4

Much love.
