Very sad. But so beautiful.

"What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul"

jinglbellsfrocks Fri 04-Apr-14 19:36:23

This could be a continuation of Nina's, or it might be a separate bit. Not sure.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. Not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Ariadne Fri 04-Apr-14 20:30:14

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Matthew 11

I read this on an architects headstone and have liked it ever since, it's from Hebrews 'For he looked for a city without foundations, whose builder and maker is God'.

I also like 'Greater love hath no man, than he lay his life down for another'.

It is a disgraceful thing for a woman to speak in church.

Well it mover me – to anger.

Mine is the same as Jinglebellsfrocks
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. Not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Isaiah 40:31 "But they (that wait upon the Lord) shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint". As often quoted by my mother. Still makes me feel strong writing swiping it down.

Do to others as you would have them do to you.

merlotgran Fri 04-Apr-14 23:30:44

Truly this was the son of God.

annodomini Fri 04-Apr-14 23:33:22

Ariadne, I like your quotation and like it even more when it becomes a wonderful solo in The Messiah.
For myself, I would choose the Beatitudes as my favourite passage in the New Testament.

durhamjen Fri 04-Apr-14 23:35:24

Not the Beatitudes. I had to sing them every day for years in the high school I went to.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

boheminan Sat 05-Apr-14 11:57:40

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone

petallus Sat 05-Apr-14 12:33:35

I am always moved by Job's lamentations, starting 'Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived. Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it .....' and so on.

When I read it all I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Grannyknot Sat 05-Apr-14 13:42:42

I also love this one, and it is quite apt for Gransnet smile:

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

For two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.

TAB12 Sat 05-Apr-14 22:15:57

Happy are those who have not seen but yet believe.
