I apologize for any amount of plagiarism that may show up here. None of these thoughts is original, but they have been floating around in my mind of late.
We will never be able to vote the world into a better state than we find our own heart.
We cannot expect more righteousness from the world than we are willing to live ourselves.
We cannot expect peace in the world until we have peace in our own hearts.
If we believe in the Holy Spirit, then we believe in prayer because we know he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Therefore, prayer is action.
We will never find reconciliation unless we are firstly able to forgive everyone who has wronged us and secondly able to forgive everyone who has wronged people like us.
Let us be thankful for our enemies as they are more willing to speak the truth about us than our friends are.
If we can make it through an entire day without condemning someone in our hearts, we are probably saints (worthy of a holiday), and we probably won’t even notice it happened.
It is impossible to love God and hate those made in his image.
