Rick Warren
– You’ll never understand yourself fully. But you can get to know Jesus who does understand you fully and still loves you.
– It’s stupid to assume we know the motivations of other’s hearts. We don’t know our own motivations most of the time.
– If you always give “a piece of your mind” to those who irritate you, you soon have none left. Be better.

Rick Warren
Never be impressed with charisma. Look for character.

A W Tozer
When we make a choice today we are deciding who will we will be tomorrow.

John Piper
– First a Christian, then a Protestant, then a Calvinist, then a complementarian, then a credobapist, then a Baptist.
– Hemmingway born this day 1899. In 1961 he killed himself, as did his father, sister, brother. Strong writing. Such sorrows.

Rick Warren
– Nothing is small when God is a part of it.
– When people who SEEM so right about the Gospel are so wrong about their own character, they don’t really know the Gospel.
– The Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven has far more implications than just getting to heaven.

A W Tozer
The most dangerous trap is just living and forgetting that God exists.

D. A. Carson
It is a wretched bastardization of our goals when we want to win glory for ourselves instead of for Him.

C. S. Lewis
– He who has God and everything else has no more than he who has God only.
– To ask that God’s love should be content with us as we are is to ask that God should cease to be God.

Charles Spurgeon
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.

A saint’s life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer.

Rick Warren
– Only insecure people need status symbols.
– Needing to wear a brand advertizes your lack of confidence in your own identity.

A W Tozer
– If the Church says it but Scripture does not say it, I will reject it.
– Worship is no longer worship when it reflects the culture around us more than the Christ within us.

Max Lucado
The great news of the gospel is, yes, his grace is real, and so is our freedom.

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!

Bob Goff
We’re the only species that can be divided by its opinions; we’re the only one that can be united around a Person.
