A wise Prophet of God: Jesus of Nazareth

{ Sunday, July 24, 2011 }
In Christianity and Islam, Jesus (Isa) is a beloved prophet of God. He was very wise and peaceful, and I have great respect for him. That's why I decided to fill my post with some of his sayings :)

Are not sparrows sold for very little? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.   The very hairs on your head have been counted. Fear not. You are worth more than a flock of sparrows.
Lk 12:6f  Mt 10:29-31

Don't be anxious about your life,  what you are going to eat,  or about your body,  what you will wear.Think about the ravens. They don't sow or reap. They don't have storehouses or barns,  yet God feeds them. Consider how the field-flowers grow. They don't toil or spin. And yet even Solomon in all his splendour wasn't adorned like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass,  which is there today and tomorrow is thrown in the fire,  won't he all the more clothe you?
Mt 6:25-30  Lk 12:22-28   

The kingdom of God is like a woman mixing yeast into dough and turning it all into large loaves.
Th 96  Mt 13:33  Lk 13:20f 

If your son asks you for a loaf of bread who among you would give him a stone? Or for a fish would you give him a snake? If you know how to give good gifts to your children,  how much more will God give good gifts to those who ask?
Mt 7:9-11  Lk 11:11-13

The kingdom of God is like a mustard seed. It's a tiny seed,  but when it falls on good soil it produces a large plant and becomes a shelter for birds of the sky.
Th 20  Mk 4:30-32  Mt 13:31f  Lk 13:19

If you have money, don't lend it at interest. Give it to someone who won't be able to return it.
Th 95  Lk 6:34 

Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Mk 11:25  Mt 6:14f  Lk 6:37 

Treat others the way you would like them to treat you.
Lk 6:31  Mt 7:12  Th 6 

You notice the speck in your brother's eye,  but you don't see the log in your own eye.   When you take the log out of your own eye you will be able to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
Lk 6:41f  Mt 7:3-5  Th 26  

The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed. They won't say,  "Here it is!"  or "There it is!" The kingdom of God is among you.
Lk 17:20f  Th 113 

Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles?
Lk 6:44  Mt 7:16  Th 45

No one lights a lamp and then puts it in a cellar or under a bushel. It goes on a stand so that those who come in may see the light.
Lk 11:33, 8:16  Mt 5:15  Mk 4:21  Th 33 

Ask and it will be given. Seek and you will find. Knock and it will be opened for you.
Lk 11:9  Mt 7:7  Th 2, 92, 94 

Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted
Lk 14:11

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you 
Mt 5:44f

I always said I liked prophet Jesus (pbuh) more than Mohammed (pbuh). It's true. But I am always told that that is wrong and I must love prophet Mohammed more. Ugh.

Thank you for this post.
