The Purpose of Life...

"The purpose of life is not to win. The purpose of life is to grow and to share. When you come to look back on all that you have done in life, you will get more satisfaction from the pleasure you have brought to other people's lives than you will from the times you outdid and defeated them. 

~ Rabbi Harold Jushner

The Choice Is Yours

"We are forced to make a choice at many points in our spiritual maturity. My prayer is we will yearn for more of the knowledge of God before we make those choices." ~ A. W. Tozer

Debtors to All Men

"We Christians are debtors to all men at all times in all places, but we are so smug to the lostness of men. We've been "living in Laodicea", lax, loose, lustful, and lazy. Why is there this criminal indifference to the lostness of men? Our condemnation is that we know how to live better than we are living." ~ Leonard Ravenhill

Submit...

"The reader may admire the rich imagery of the Bible, its bold figures and impassioned flights of eloquence. He may enjoy its tender musical passages, and revel in its strong honesty and wisdom; but until he has submitted to its full authority over his life, he has secured no good from it." ~ A. W. Tozer

Easter Isn't...

Let’s get it straight that Easter is not just the remembrance of something that happened in the past. It is the good news that the risen Savior is alive and is on the road ahead of us. We will not find him in the tomb of our broken dreams and shattered expectations, in the graveyard of defeats and failures, embalmed in some experience in the past. We will find him out ahead of us on the road that leads to a radically new tomorrow. ~ Jim Harnish

"Decisions become easier when your will to please God outweighs your will to please the world." ~ Coetzer

Odd Moments

“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us.” ~ Umberto Eco

Live Well

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. 

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Commitment

"The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would come his way." ~ William H. Murray

In a Place...

"I want to be in a place where I have to have God in everything I do... where God is indispensable to me." ~ A.W. Tozer

Do's and Don'ts

“Anytime we talk more about dos and don’ts than about Jesus something’s wrong.”
