October 6: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


There is a moral to every story even when the ending isn’t clearly outlined for you. Mark 4:2-9

Critics accuse parables as being evasive; but they’re actually about who has the will to hear. Mark 4:10-12

Biggest stumbling blocks to living a productive and fruitful faith: Satan, persecution, worries, wealth and comparison. Mark 4:14-20

Much love.

    This verse made me think of you: 1 Peter 3:15 “But sanctify Christy as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.”

    Sometimes people forget what it means to be gentle and reverent when dealing with people interpersonally. I feel like this is a Biblical principle answer to the common concern of secular Christians to “speak truth” over living out of grace.
