words to live by - challenged by Shane Claiborne

Mel, and Nick, I've got my hands on the SCM Southampton copy of 'The
Irresistible Revolution'. It's killing me. In all the right ways.

Some words that are standing out that I'm coming back to:
1 Peter 4:9 (New Living Translation)

Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.

Ruth 1:16-17 (New International Version, ©2011)

 16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from
you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your
people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will
die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever
so severely, if even death separates you and me.”

Luke 3:11 (English Standard Version)

11And he answered them,(A) "Whoever has two tunics[a] is to share with
him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise."

I'll be back on these.
