Verse of today

22 Proverbs
22:1 A good name is to be chosen rather than great wealth,

good favor more than silver or gold.

2 The rich and the poor meet together;

the Lord is the creator of them both.

3 A shrewd person sees danger and hides himself,

but the naive keep right on going and suffer for it.

4 The reward for humility and fearing the Lord

is riches and honor and life.

5 Thorns and snares are in the path of the perverse,

but the one who guards himself keeps far from them.

6 Train a child in the way that he should go,

and when he is old he will not turn from it.

15 1 Corinthians
15:1 Now I want to make clear for you, brothers and sisters, the gospel that I preached to you, that you received and on which you stand, 2 and by which you are being saved, if you hold firmly to the message I preached to you – unless you believed in vain. 3 For I passed on to you as of first importance what I also received – that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, 4 and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. 8 Last of all, as though to one born at the wrong time, he appeared to me also.

Verse of Today

13 1 Corinthians
13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but I do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so that I can remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away everything I own, and if I give over my body in order to boast, but do not have love, I receive no benefit.

4 Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful. 6 It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth. 7 It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Verse of today

1 Corinthians

11:1 Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.

2 I praise you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions just as I passed them on to you. 3 But I want you to know that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ. 4 Any man who prays or prophesies with his head covered disgraces his head. 5But any woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered disgraces her head, for it is one and the same thing as having a shaved head. 6 For if a woman will not cover her head, she should cut off her hair. But if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, she should cover her head. 7 For a man should not have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God. But the woman is the glory of the man.

10 1 Corinthians
10:1 For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea, 2 and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3 and all ate the same spiritual food, 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they were all drinking from the spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ. 5 But God was not pleased with most of them, for they were cut down in the wilderness. 6 These things happened as examples for us, so that we will not crave evil things as they did. 7 So do not be idolaters, as some of them were. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.” 8 And let us not be immoral, as some of them were, and twenty-three thousand died in a single day.

Verse of today

105 Psalms
105:1 Give thanks to the Lord!

Call on his name!

Make known his accomplishments among the nations!

2 Sing to him!

Make music to him!

Tell about all his miraculous deeds!

3 Boast about his holy name!

Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!

4 Seek the Lord and the strength he gives!

Seek his presence continually!

5 Recall the miraculous deeds he performed,

his mighty acts and the judgments he decreed,

6 O children of Abraham, God’s servant,

you descendants of Jacob, God’s chosen ones!
