An ounce of sin…

An ounce of sin can harm us more than a ton of suffering. Sin can harden our hearts so we lose everything; but suffering, if handled rightly, can make us wiser, happier, and deeper.

~ Tim Keller

Focus on the Sheperd

“Both the child and the cynic walk through the valley of the shadow of death.  The cynic focuses on the darkness; the child focuses on the Shepherd” (Paul Miller, A Praying Life).

The center of the world

“Two sides of the same coin…

Repentance relinquishes the center

of your world to God; Praise makes

God the center of your world.”

~ Jack Miller

Faith

Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.”

~ Elisabeth Elliot

Ministry is . . .

“The stairway to the ministry is not a grand staircase but a back stairwell that leads down to the servants’ quarters.”

~Edmund Clowney
