When we have done our best, we also have to learn that we still need to rely on God. Our best, no matter how good, is incomplete if we leave God out of the picture-Dr Ben Carson
PLAYING WITH FIRE!
Sometimes we don’t understand the reasons behind God’s commands. We may even think He is a cosmic killjoy, setting up rules and regulations to keep us from enjoying ourselves. But God asks us to obey Him because He has our best interests at heart. As we obey, we “remain in his love” and are filled with joy (John 15:10-11).
So when God warns us not to sin, He does it for our own good. He really wants to protect us from “playing with fire” and getting burned. –Our Daily Bread (06/10/15)
You know nothing about others; keep this in your mind! You don’t know the reasons behind their silence, smiles nor their tears. You only know what they let you know. – From Arab-quotes
Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organised conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them; neither persons nor property will be safe. – Frederick Douglas
Peace is not the absence of troubles! It is not when you are famous, when your bills are paid regularly, when you are progressing well in your career, when your finance is robust, when your health is sound, when your house is calm, when your children are doing well, when your country is peaceful, etc.
Peace is knowing that when things are fine with you, God is in control; and when things are not fine with you, He is also in control. –Dr. Stoney
People don’t CARE how much you KNOW, until they KNOW how much you CARE-Anonymous
I don’t know the secret of success, but I sure know that of failure. It is trying to satisfy everyone! -Bill Crosby.
