humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.
it’s not about what we become for Him. It’s about what He makes of us for His glory.
if we’re poor, it’s because the world is unfair (not because of any failing or lack of talent on our part); if we’re rich, it’s because we’ve risen, through hard work, to the top of a fundamentally fair system (not because we benefited from advantages we didn’t earn). humans are excellent – and opportunistic – storytellers.
no grit, no pearl.
it is vain to do with more what can be done with less.
WILLIAM OF OCCAM
talent is a gift. bragging about it or letting it go to your head is about as interesting or sensical as boasting about how expensive some present you received is.
the most precious jewels you’ll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children.
He’s not safe, but He’s good.
it is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
