Favorite Scriptures: (Pastors typically do not have “one” favorite Scripture. Instead, “new” favorites might arise from our study time.)
John 3:17 (NKJV) - For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Exodus 14:11 (NKJV) - Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt?
1 Kings 22:18 (NKJV) - And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Did I not tell you he would not prophesy good concerning me, but evil?”
The last two are so funny because they capture the essence of being human!
