8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
I haven't chosen a life verse for Baby Bean, I just haven't had the time to really ponder and read. I would like something either from John or from James, I think, since his name is connected to both books. So far, the only one I was considering is James 3:17 :
17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
It doesn't feel quite right to me. One passage I stumbled across this week that means a lot to me is Isaiah 58: 6 - 8:
6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? 7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? 8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness[a] will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
I'd love advice or input. If you can think of a passage that might be good for my son, I'd love to hear it. I haven't found the right passage yet and I suspect it is right in front of my face and I am just not seeing it.
