20 of My Favorite Bible Verses

When thinking about favorite Bible verses it was hard to narrow it down to just 20. Looking through these verses it struck me how that all of them are verses I learned about or memorized as a teenager. I have memorized many more verses since my teen years, but these verses always rise to the top when thinking about favorite Bible verses. Almost all of them carry memories of friends and experiences through the years.

I trust you will enjoy this list as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
