"I will teach you, remembering and bearing in mind the obligations of my servantship, so that I speak not as a master, but as a minister, not to pupils but to fellow pupils since I speak not to servants, but to fellow servants. For we all have one maser, whose school is on earth and whose cathedral is in heaven."

April Scripture Memorization

How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You. Blessed are You, O Lord! Teach me your statutes. With my lips I have declared all the judgements of Your mouth. I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, as much as in all riches. I will meditate on Your precepts, and contemplate Your ways. I will delight myself in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word.
