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
– 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.
