LC Does the Gospel Meme

Here's a meme that's been making the rounds: Take the month and day of your birthdate, then find the corresponding chapter and verse of each Gospel and see what that says.

I did this with my birthdate. Let's go to the videotape...

Matthew 12:26: "If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand?"

Mark 12:26: "And as for the dead being raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the story about the bush, how God said to him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'?"

Luke 12:26: "If then you are not able to do so small a thing as that, why do you worry about the rest?"

John 12:26: "Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor."

Bible roulet?

Here's mine (sans the reference so we can read it as one mass blog):

for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you... He said to him, “Teacher, I have kept all these since my youth.” ...Nevertheless, do not rejoice at this, that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” ... Many of them were saying, “He has a demon and is out of his mind. Why listen to him?”

Seems a bit heavy on the spiritual warfare stuff... What am I to make of that???

Well, at least yours holds together thematically more than mine.;-)

The Lucan verse was the one that stuck out for me, even more than the text from John, which obviously had its own "Whoa!" factor.

The verse in Luke is talking about changing the color of a strand of hair, but I find it very applicable to all the other things I'm worrying about at any given moment.

Depends whether I use the UK way of putting dates - i.e. 3/11 or the US way - 11/3!

Either way its a random collection of half sentences!!!

Charlotte: Yes. So I used to be the recipient of many "combination" gifts...which of course made me a little resentful...which in turn made me guilty, because it was like competing with the Baby Jesus.;-) Nowadays I try to forget my birthday altogether, so it's all good.;-)
