8.14 After this, a woman called from the crowd, “Blessed is the womb that bore and the breasts that you sucked.” He said, “Rather blessed are those who hear and obey Gods word.

Jul 11 As the crowds pressed, Jesus said, “This evil generation seeks a sign, but none will be given except the sign of Jonah.1 For as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of man be to this generation. At the judgment, the Queen of the South will rise and condemn this generation, because she traveled far to hear Solomons wisdom, and now a greater One is here. The Ninevites will also rise and condemn this generation, because they repented at Jonahs preaching, and now a greater One than Jonah is here.

No one lights a lamp2 and hides it, but puts it on a stand so all can see. The lamp of your body is your eye. If your eyes are pure, you are full of light; if evil, you are full of darkness. So watch, lest the light in you is darkness. If you are full of light with no darkness, you are fully lit as with a lamps rays.”
