Interfaith Sunday: Gems from the Bible

{ Sunday, April 29, 2012 }
The Interfaith series are an acknowledgement of the Wisdom that can be found in every religion and tradition. It's an effort to unite rather than to divide. It's a moment to reach out to others and take their hand, and to say "we are one, you and I. You are part of God's beautiful creation, and so am I, so let's rejoice instead of making war. Let's learn from each other's differences instead of judging and condemning them. Come, my friend, let's learn from one another."



Here are some wonderful quotes from the Bible to reflect on. 




"I have set My rainbow in the clouds,
and it will be the sign of the covenant
between Me and the earth. "
Genesis 9:13 



***
"Two are better than one...
If the one falls,
the other will lift up his companion."
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10



***
"Let all that you do
be done in love. "
1 Corinthians 16:14

***
"The LORD will guide you continually...
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water,
whose waters never fail. "

Isaiah 58:11




***

"Blessed are they who mourn,
for they will be comforted."
Matthew 5:4


***
"And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly.
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God? "

Micah 6:8


***

"...Be strong and of good courage;
do not be afraid, nor be dismayed,
for the Lord your God is with you

wherever you go. "

Joshua 1:9
***
"Ask, and it will be given to you;
seek, and you will find;
knock, and it will be opened to you. "
Matthew 7:7

***


"...let us love one another,
because love is from God;

everyone who loves is born of God

and knows God. "

1 John 4:7




***
Love is patient,love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs
Love does not delight in evil 
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, 
always trusts, 
always hopes, 
always perseveres"
I Corinthians 13:4-7



***



Who provides for the raven his food
When his young ones cry unto God?
Job 38:41

These are beautiful sharing Safiyah, I think it's by sharing, learning from one another on our different religions, different paths and journeys, that we will be able to truly walk hand in hand, knowing deep down we are all children of God.

This talks to me a lot - "Let all that you do be done in love. "1 Corinthians 16:14

Thanks Safiyah for your open heart and mind. It is such a blessing.
Much love dear.xx
