July 30: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


It’s time to put our big-boy and big-girl pants on and start living a faith actually worth living. Matthew 17:19-21

You either forgive your most hated enemies or you, yourself, will meet the same fate. Matthew 18:32-35

In the church single people and those who are celibate are treated as poorly as the gay community. The whole system is backwards. A lifelong commitment to celibacy should be honored just as much as God’s deep love for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders. Matthew 19:10-12

What desirable entity have you left behind to pursue God more intently when everyone around you said you were crazy? I’m not asking if you tithe, I’m asking about that which is closest to you. Matthew 19:28-30

Much love.
