Today's Scripture

Rep. Brian Egolf, D-Santa Fe, reponded on the floor of the House a few minutes ago to yesterday's complaints from Republicans about the slow pace of the special session.

He accused Republicans of reciting "talking points" from the 4th Floor and political party chairmen (Republican, I presume.) He said he had "talking points from a higher power."

Then he read from the New Testament, Matthew 6:1 to 6:4

1 "Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness' before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

2 "So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.

3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
