Nov 17: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


Cynicism does nothing but separate you from the Kingdom of Heaven. Mark 10:13-16

Jesus looked in love to even those he knew would never listen to him. Mark 10:17-22

Everyone needs to be validated in their experiences at some point. Mark 10:23-30a

Where there is good, there is evil. Where there is the glory of God being lived, there is persecution as well. In this life there cannot be one without the other in either direction. Mark 10:30b

Much love.
