My pick for this round:
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless & pure, children of God without fault in a crooked & depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life...
*Do EVERYTHING without complaing and/or arguing? OK... that's the toughest thing for me to work on - why I picked this verse. This is going to be a real challenge for me to even notice all the times I complain or argue... at a stop light? In the grocery line? Doing the laundry of 31 pairs of jeans? (See Friday Frag for more notes on that one) ;)
*Blameless & pure? ... that sounds wonderful. Who doesnt want to be blameless? Even after all the things we screw up?
*"Children of God" ... that sounds EVEN MORE wonderful... Also, its why I'm a PRINCESS... I'm a child of the King! (cue Princess Wave)
*"Crooked & depraved generation" .... doesnt it seem that still fits this time of the world better then ever?
*"Shine like the stars" ... we sing the song "SHINE" by Fee with the youth all the time... raise the roof with it! So now, this verse makes it even more meaningful
*"Hold out the word of life" ... Can you picture holding something out in your arms straight ahead of you? It would be the first thing someone would notice! Doing that with God's Word? Yep... I want that to be the first thing people see in me....
Cant wait to see what other verses my Siesta-Sisters have picked :)
