1. Favorite Bible verse and why?

1. Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper

you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

There have been times where I have questioned God’s will. Mostly because im
in situations where I would never want to be. So out of all that frustration and
helplessness and hurt I would question him that after all the prayers, hardwork
and begging , is this what I get? To regain my spiritual sanity I would read this
specific verse and I feel like my inner conscience whispers to me that God is
trying to protect me from a possible harm in the future that I am not able to
foresee right now … is not that He has anything against me but He is just
trying to protect me. So it gives me sort of a closure.

9. Narrate any two parables from the Bible

9. The Parable of the Mustard Seed: Our grasp of this parable hinges upon a
correct understanding of its key elements: the sower, the mustard seed, the great
tree which grew from it, and the birds which perched on its branches.
The first two elements are easily understood.The sower is Jesus Himself. He is the
planter who came to atone for our sins so that we might become fruitful

 The mustard seed was the smallest seed known at the time. While it becomes
more of a shrub than a tree, it can reach about 10 feet high. The mustard seed
represents the Gospel, starting very small but growing to reach millions
throughout the world who will inherit the kingdom. The field represents all the
people of the earth who will receive Him.
 The tree is rooted in Jesus Christ and has grown a harvest far beyond its initial
planting. A tree, whose large branches offer a sanctuary for birds, was a familiar
Old Testament symbol for a mighty kingdom which gave shelter to the nations.
The tree represents earthly greatness and refuge to the nations. The tiny mustard
seed, growing to be a tree, symbolizes Jesus’ offer of refuge and life in God’s

The parable of the Pharsee and the Tax collector: Two men went up to the temple
to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11
The Pharisee stood by
himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers,
evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12
I fast twice a week and
give a tenth of all I get.’
“But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to
heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’
“I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before
God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble
themselves will be exalted.”
