Memory Monday — Pigs and Pearls

From memory:

Matthew 7:1-6
"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
"Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.

I got it all right this week. Last week I did verses 1 through 5, and I left out three words. I corrected it before I posted, putting the words in a different color. I selected a nice darker red shade, and then after I posted I realized it was the same exact color my words always show up in the text. I was too lazy to go back and fix it, so I'm confessing it here. I left out three words last week. And if you haven't read what I had to say about pigs, pearls, and such, and you're interested, you can go take a look at that post here.

Next week, prudes. As in we are at our house, not that I went piddling in my concordance and found it listed.

My verses for next week:
Proverbs 4:23
Proverbs 4:24
Proverbs 4:25
Proverbs 4:26
Proverbs 4:27

I listed them individually instead of as a group because that's how I will be memorizing them and explaining their meaning to our family.

I love the accountablility Memory Monday provides me. You can read more about it at The Simple Wife.

Prudes? As in "prudish?" Like an old school marm is an old prude? Huh? I'm totally stumped and watching to see what you'll pull out of that wacky concordance for next week! Happy Monday!

And I'm looking forward to the lesson on prudes! :)
