Day 3: Favorite New Testament Scripture

Matt 5:14-16: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and pit it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.


The main reason that I love this scripture so much is because it was the first scripture mastery that I learned. In 11th grade when I started going to seminary, the teacher didn't really care if I was a member or not, she just wanted me to feel included and to have me learn just as much as everyone else, so she gave me the scripture mastery cards and all the new testament study guides, and then I ran home and tried to memorize everything in one night. That didn't happen, but I did memorize this scripture, and then I remember I ran to school the next day and recited the whole thing to my best friend Jess who I had be going to seminary with, I'm sure she thought I was crazy, but it was awesome!
