The moment we glorify ourselves, since there is room for one glory only in the universe, we set ourselves up as rivals to the Most High.

Some call everything in life a test; but following Jesus seems more like writing a great book than just cramming for finals.

A W Tozer
If God gives you a watch, are you honoring Him more by asking Him what time it is or by simply consulting the watch?

Man has a longer list of what is required in faith than Jesus did; our list of what’s optional is probably longer too.

Paul David Tripp
– You can’t hear him, but he’s wiser, can’t see him, but he’s more faithful, can’t touch him, but he’s nearer than whatever else you’d trust.
– You were hardwired to depend on God, so your dreams of self-reliance and self-sufficiency will prove to be more nightmare than dream.
– You can say goodbye to fear since grace covers not only what has been exposed and what lies in secret, but also what is yet to be known.

Brian Houston
Leaders goal: Live in the realization that small-spirited people react to small-spirited people. Be bigger than that!
