Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 13!

Hey, You Scripture Memorizing Siestas!

Can you believe it’s already July 1st? FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! Where has the summer gone? Well, actually, in Houston we’re ready to say good riddance to it but I don’t think it’s going anywhere soon. As if we didn’t already have the hottest summers in the Wild West, we are setting record temperatures here this year. There is no font big enough for me to type the word “Bummer” as large as I feel it. I do not like hot weather. Especially hot, HUMID weather. But I’m not one to complain. I just walk out the door in the morning and yell at the top of my lungs, “GOOD GRIEF!”

On to much more important things! It’s time for Verse 13! We’ve made it over the hump to the second half of our commitment and I’m really pumped. Yesterday morning on the way to work, I said all the verses in my spiral out loud to God. To His great glory, I did indeed get my Psalm 112 segment memorized and it has been no small delight to me this month.

My selection this time around is coming from our SSBS, Me, Myself and Lies. Jennifer mentions it in Week Three. I’m a little ahead of you so, if you’re staying on schedule, you probably haven’t seen it yet. It’s Proverbs 7:4 out of the NASB. Since I primarily use the NIV, I had never seen it worded like this before.

Say to wisdom “You are my sister” and call understanding your intimate friend.

That’s what I’m saying! “You are my sister” to wisdom and “You are my intimate friend” to understanding. Now, that’s what I call some mighty fine soul mates. Try hanging out with them, why don’t we?

OK, let’s hear yours! Name, city, verse, and reference with translation abbreviations. Hit it, Siestas!

I love you and I’m so proud of you.

    Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners and those who are being mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Marriage should be honored by all and the marriage bed kept pure. For God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

    If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, "Love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. For he who said, "Do not commit adultery, also said, "Do not murder." If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.
    Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!
