2021 Reading Week 31

Day 1: Psalm 133:1 NLT

How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!

Day 2: Matthew 7:12 MSG

 “Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them. Add up God’s Law and Prophets and this is what you get.

Day 3: Matthew 18:19-20 MSG

“Take this most seriously: A yes on earth is yes in heaven; a no on earth is no in heaven. What you say to one another is eternal. I mean this. When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.”

Day 4: Matthew 22:37-39 MSG

Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.”

Day 5: John 13:34-35 MSG

“Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”

Day 6: Proverbs 17:17 MSG

Friends love through all kinds of weather, and families stick together in all kinds of trouble.

Day 7: Proverbs 27:10

Never abandon a friend— either yours or your father’s. When disaster strikes, you won’t have to ask your brother for assistance. It’s better to go to a neighbor than to a brother who lives far away.

Day 8: Proverbs 27:17 AMP

As iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens [and influences] another [through discussion].
