Nuggets Of WisdomJob 5:17b: . . . Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: . . .
Happy, because the correction is designed to bring him into paths of blessedness and peace. Happy, because there is no unnecessary severity in it. Happy, because the chastisement is not so much against us, as against our most cruel enemies . . . our sins. Happy, because we have abundant words of consolation. Happy, because whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth. Happy, because our light affliction is but for a moment.1 John 4:16: And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Mark Guy Pearse:
God is love; and it is good, as it is true, to think that every sun-ray that touches the earth has the sun at the other end of it; so every bit of love upon god*s earth has God at the other end of it. J. Hudson Taylor: The real secret of an unsatisfied life lies too often in an un-surrendered will.Zechariah 4:10b: . . . small things . . .
It is the little words you speak, the little thoughts you think, the little things you do or leave undone, the little moments you waste or use wisely, the little temptations which you yield to or overcome . . . the little things of every day that are making or marring your future life.
Silence is the best reply to a fool.
There*s no better feeling than going to bed at night and not having to set the alarm for tomorrow morning.
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
One of the most profoundly human things you can do is talk to someone instead of about them.
We don*t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason.
As we grow up, we realize that it is less important to have lots of friends, and more important to have real ones.
The real reason we cannot have the Ten Commandments in the courthouse: You cannot post *Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not commit adultery, and Thou shalt not bear false witness* in a building full of judges, lawyers and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.
