18 Though you have eyes, do you not see? And though you have ears,
do you not hear and listen [to what I have said]? And do you not remember,
19 when I broke the five loaves for the five thousand,
how many baskets full of broken pieces you picked up?”
They answered, “Twelve.”
43 Why don’t you understand what I’m saying?
Because you can’t bear to listen to my message.
44 You belong to your father, Satan, and you want to carry out your father’s desires.
From the start he was a murderer, and he has never stood by the truth,
because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie,
he is speaking in character; because he is a liar —
indeed, the inventor of the lie!
47 Whoever belongs to God accepts what he says.
But you don’t accept what God says, because you don’t belong to God.”
45 The good person out of the good treasure of the heart produces good,
and the evil person out of evil treasure produces evil;
for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks.
Proverbs 29:1Amplified Bible (AMP)
29 He who hardens his neck and refuses instruction
after being often reproved (corrected, criticized),
Will suddenly be broken beyond repair.
James 1:22 New King James Version (NKJV)
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
5 Examine and test and evaluat
and showing the proper fruits of it. Test and prove yourselves
Do you not yourselves realize and know [thoroughly by an ever-increasing experience] that Jesus Christ is in you—unless you are [counterfeits] disapproved on trial and rejected?
Galatians 6:3 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
1 Corinthians 8:2 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?”
27 He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
28 And he said to him, “You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.”
