As a celebration of my 50th birthday, I decided to share 50 passages of Scripture that I often use. They will be listed in no particular order. They are verses that I often use for myself or for others, and they cover many different types of situations. I hope they will be an encouragement and help to you. The first parts are here , here, here. and here. If you have favourite verses, please share them.
A good name is better than a good ointment,
Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth,
before the evil days come and the years draw near
when you will say, “I have no delight in them”
Let your conversation be without covetousness;
and be content with such things as ye have:
for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves:
for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account,
that they may do it with joy, and not with grief:
for that is unprofitable for you.
That they may teach the young women to be sober,
to love their husbands, to love their children,
1 Peter 3:4
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit,
which is in the sight of God of great price.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
For ye have need of patience,
that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
