"What you are is God's gift to you; what you do with yourself is your gift to God."
- Danish Proverb
73You made me; you created me.
Now give me the sense to follow your commands.
1 Peter 2:4-6 (NLT)
4Come to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God's temple. He was rejected by the people, but he is precious to God who chose him. 5And now God is building you, as living stones, into his spiritual temple. What's more, you are God's holy priests, who offer the spiritual sacrifices that please him because of Jesus Christ.
Luke 13:18-19 (NLT)
18Then Jesus said, "What is the Kingdom of God like? How can I illustrate it? 19It is like a tiny mustard seed planted in a garden; it grows and becomes a tree, and the birds come and find shelter among its branches."
