Or should we restrict it to Matthew. (I always seem to start with Matthew and run out of steam, and start with Matthew again.) I should be able to come up with a few by tomorrow.
I don't have the references offhand, but I also like the golden rule (and its Jewish counterpart - Don't do to anyone what you wouldn't like done to yourself). And the other standards of loving-kindness. Above all love the Lord your God with all your strength. And secondly love your neighbor as yourself. And of course, That which you do to the least of my brothers, so you do unto me. Those are paraphrases of course. I don't have a bible handy in front of me. And I know how dangerous it is to paraphrase the bible. I was just inspired by your thread and moved to post. I'll check my accuracy tomorrow and correct as necessary.
