Favorite Scripture: 23rd Psalm "1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."

Favorite scripture: It isn’t necessarily one single verse, it’s actually an entire passage. And the passage of scripture is Titus 3:3-8. The reason I love this passage of scripture is because it sums up the gospel and its importance in our lives, in a very digestible way in my eyes.
