Living Out Scripture meme

I've add all those who have taken part so far. Indirectly I was asked what was mine - Gal 3.28

In The Shape of Living, David Ford writes

... be alert for some key passages of the bible to inhabit in a special way. Hans Urs von Balthasar has said that often a saint's whole life can be seen as living out just one verse of scripture. One rich verse or story can be essential to our vocation, as we come back to it year after year, and find further dimensions to it. The great words, verses and passages of scripture and the liturgy are like houses which, as we study, pray, suffer and love, are made habitable with our own furnishings, pictures, meals and children ...'

So I'd like to invite you to post that verse or story of scripture which is important to you, which you find yourself re-visiting time after time ... (you can make it two or even three, if you can't reduce it to one!). I'll tag some people to try and get it started

Ben Myers
Stuart Blythe - Luke 4.16-30

Hi Andy, I was tagged by Simon Jones, and have posted. Lucy Wright and Craig responded to being tagged by me too.

Catriona - James 2: 26b "faith without deads is dead"
Lucy - 1 Samuel 16:7 2 "man looks at the outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart"
Craig - Luke 11: 2b "Thy Kingdom Come"

Still waitin for other taggees (?) to reply

Oops, that's 'faith without deeds is dead'...!

Mark 14:6
