Boredom and Contempt

All boredom and contempt are infallible signs we have fallen out of a healthy fear of God.

(Ronald Rolheiser, The Shattered Lantern)

On Atheism

An atheist can’t find God for the same reason a thief can’t find a policeman.

(Adrian Rogers)


Are you clinging to something that no longer fits you just because it’s easy and familiar?

(Word for You Today, December, 2017-February, 2018, p. 35)


Giving fuels us; withholding drains us.  Giving requires energy, and that’s not always easy in stressful situations.

(Trudy Metzger)

Raising Our Standard

God’s blessing should result in raising our standard of giving, not our standard of living.

(Mark Batterson, All In)

Removing Fear

Fear is a self-imposed prison that will keep you from becoming what God intends for you to be.  You must move against it with the weapons of faith and love.

(Rick Warren)

No One Is Useless

No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of others.

(Charles Dickens)

A Genuine Walk With God

The abundance of religious activity is no substitute for a daily, transforming walk with God.

(Adam Dooley, Walk Through the Word, p. 10)

Trust: More Than A Slogan

Trust God for the affirmation you seek.  Rely on God for the security you need.  Rest in God for the relief anxiety steals.  Wait on God for the justice for which you long.  Only then will trust become more than a slogan.

(Adam Dooley, Walk Through the Word, p. 9)

That’s A Risk!

In a world where nearly everything can be weighed, explained, quantified, subjected to psychological analysis and scientific control, I persist in making the center of my life a God whom no eye has seen, nor ear heard, whose will no one can probe.  That’s a risk!

(Eugene Peterson, Christianity Today, “Living the Message”)
