Consider reading the chapter in several translations and choosing a few verses to memorize. This week I chose:
Luke 11:13 NRSV
Jesus said, “If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Luke 11:17b NRSV
Jesus said, “Every kingdom divided against itself becomes a desert, and house falls on house.”

Luke 11:28 NRSV, adapted
Jesus said, “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it!”

Luke 11:34-35 The Message
Your eye is a lamp, lighting up your whole body. If you live wide-eyed in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning, so you don’t get musty and murky.
