Thank you, Andy Lansing, for nominating me to share some of my favourite verses from the Holy Scripture. Here are a couple:

"Thou art my God, and I will give thee thanks: thou art my God, and I will exalt thee. I will give thanks to thee, for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. Give thanks to the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever. Alleluia" (Ps 117:28, 29 LXX).

"But Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven'" (Mt 19:14).

"Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment" (1 Co 1:10).

I now nominate Carol Samaan, Tony Boules, Peter Samaan, Mariana Maximous, Charles Yanni, Daniella Karras, Deena Fam, David Hanna, Silvia Guirguis, Sameh Guirguis, Iriny Sami, and Michael Fanous to share their passages.
