The Sermon on the Mount: Day 14

Today's Text: Matthew 6:11-12

Memorizing Scripture is one of the best ways to carry God-breathed truth, instruction, and reproof wherever we go.

As we read through the Sermon on the Mount, we are memorizing the Lord’s Prayer together. The second part of the prayer reminds us to trust God to meet our needs, and to extend forgiveness to others because we are a forgiven people.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
- Matthew 6:11-12

Write this passage down and post it on your mirror or at your desk, in your car or on the fridge—anywhere you’ll see it often. Save the image below as your phone’s lock screen so you can read these words of truth throughout the day.

We want to be a community that is intentional about Scripture memorization. Will you join us?

  • Had a rough evening and verse 12 is what spoke to me this morning. Life is still pretty challenging, but no excuse for my behavior.

    I have never had to pray for “daily bread” as I have not experienced such poverty or hunger. But I know there are many around me who do – this part of the Lord’s Prayer reminds me to always think of other’s needs. It’s good to be grateful for what I have – and better to then pray for and help beyond my four doors.

    Not me, but just want to say that you’ll be blessed by having started the habit of a quiet time early in your life. Good for you!

    It’s quite funny, I made a comment a couple days ago and a sister asked how my husband and I are doing. I’m only a high school student! Haha, but I’m now curious, who else is a fellow young Christian?

      I just graduated from college :)

      I’m 25, but I still consider that to be young. Haha. I’m not married and have no kids, so that makes me feel even younger than I am at times. And I agree with Elisabeth. I admire your commitment to Christ at such a young age! I was raised in the church, but did not begin to truly pursue a relationship with God until a year and a half ago. I wish I had recognized the importance of relationship over religion back in my teenage years, but God has given me an amazing testimony of His relentless pursuit of me. Thankful to have you in this community!

      I’m 20 years old, I have a 1 year old, I’m married and I teach the middle school aged children at church(: I am also a nurse and going back to school! And never did I think my life would be where it is now, it’s not perfect but it was definitely God working, I didn’t know it at the time but now I get it! His plans are truly perfect
