February Quotes

Here are some quotes that I like and that I have recently seen.

Job never saw why he suffered but he saw God, and that was enough.

-Timothy Keller

Only take advice from someone you are willing to trade places with.

-Steven Mehr

There is such a big difference between forgiveness and reconciliation. It takes two to reconcile, so it is not always possible to be reconciled. But it only takes one to forgive. So if people do you wrong, forgive them, whether or not they ask for forgiveness. You cannot cancel their sin. Only God can do that, and He will only do that if they repent. But you can set aside your own anger, bitterness, and resentment toward them all.

-Unknown

I don’t need everyone to hear me say I’m a Christian, but I do need everyone to see Christ in me.

-Unknown

Loving God with all of the heart, soul, mind, and strength can only ever be done in the context of the moments we have been given right now, however ordinary or weak.

-Dana Candler

An idol is usually a good thing that we make ultimate. We say “Unless I have that, I am nothing.”

-Timothy Keller

If your life is an uphill slope, set your sails to catch God’s power.

-Woodrow Kroll

Imagine you … see a small dog sitting by a tree. As you approach it, it suddenly lunges at you … You are frightened and angry. But then you notice that one of its legs is caught in a trap. Immediately your mood shifts from anger to concern: You see that the dog’s aggression is coming from a place of vulnerability and pain … When we behave in hurtful ways, it is because we are caught in some kind of trap. The more we look through the eyes of wisdom at ourselves and one another, the more we cultivate a compassionate heart.

-Tara Brach

The greatest legacy one can pass on to one’s children and grandchildren is not money or other material things … But rather a legacy of character and Faith.

-Billy Graham
