Rebecca Huff, who works in our Mass Torts Section, says one of her favorite verses comes from John 20:31. She says even though her grandfather was a Methodist minister and her family church-going folks, she had a hard time understanding how God could have cared enough about her. This verse answered her questions as a 12-year-old when she became saved and it still reminds her today how much God cares.
But these things are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name.
John 20: 31
Valerie Scroggins, who works in our Consumer Fraud Section, furnished a verse for this issue. It has a most profound message.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Galatians 2:20 (NKJV)
Teresa Reid, who works in our Mass Torts Section, has two scriptures on her bulletin board located right in front of her desk. Teresa says all she has to do is look up at the board when she needs comfort or perspective.
Don’t forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it.
Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Soo Seok Yang, a lawyer who works as a law clerk in our Mass Torts Section, furnished some of his favorite verses for this issue. Soo Seok and his family came to the U.S. in 2008 from Korea. He came to work with us on August 20, 2009, and has become a most valuable addition to the firm. These are his verses.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11: 1
My friend, Dot Robinson, who works for the Montgomery County Bar Association, sent in her favorite verse for this issue.

Chris Glover, one of our lawyers, asked me to include one of his favorite verses in this issue. He says it reminds us of the power of the word of God to help us do what we can’t do ourselves. It allows us to truly change our weaknesses into strengths. We are reminded that God can change our sinful nature to a life pleasing to Him.
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
My long-time friend from Tuscaloosa, Mike Bownes, sent in the following verses:
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials.
And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
II Cor. 12:9
